Jeri Westerson not only created a new genre with her Crispin Guest Mystery Series, but also successfully intermingled genres that may have not meshed in less capable hands. Shadow of the Alchemist, Jeri’s sixth book in the Medieval Noir series, once again places shamed Knight Crispin Guest into an intriguing scenario. Nicholas Flamel has gone missing and Crispin is charged with finding his kidnapper. Jeri’s enthusiasm for all things medieval doesn’t stop with her novels. All we’re saying is that there will most likely be chainmail and swords. A lot of swords.

Jeri Westerson writes medieval mysteries with an enigmatic, flawed, sexy, and very different protagonist. His name is Crispin Guest and he's an ex-knight turned private eye. You might want to think of him as a Medieval Sam Spade and these mysteries as Medieval Noir. Westerson will read from her latest book, Blood Lance. Crispin Guest, returning home after a late night, sees a body hurtling from the uppermost reaches of the London Bridge. Guest's attempted rescue fails, however, and the man is dead. While whispers in the street claim that it was a suicide, Guest is unconvinced. Westerson will also demonstrate medieval weapons at this event which will be preceded with a cheese and wine reception.

Jeri Westerson discusses and signs Blood Lance: A Medieval Noir
Crispin Guest, returning home after a late night, sees a body hurtling from the uppermost reaches of the London Bridge. Guest's attempted rescue fails, however, and the man—an armourer with a shop on the bridge—is dead. While whispers in the street claim that it was a suicide, Guest—known in certain London circles as The Tracker for his skill in solving puzzles—is unconvinced. What Guest uncovers is that the armourer had promised Sir Thomas Saunfayl, a friend from Guest's former life, that he would provide him something that would make him unbeatable in battle, something for which he'd paid a small fortune. Sir Thomas believes that the item was in fact the Spear of Longinus-the spear that pierced the side of Christ on the cross—which is believed to make those who possess it invincible.
This discussion is free and open to the public. Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of Blood Lance from Vroman's, and one additional copy for every 3 books they bring from home. Save your Vroman's receipt; it will be checked when you enter the signing line.
