Author and local resident Jack Matthews will be giving a presentation about his latest book Arte Pedida. Manny Pereira, a decorated and disabled Vietnam War Veteran, races to find the killer in an investigation that spans from Nazi Germany to the Azores and Newfoundland, and finally to the neighborhoods of this once peaceful harbor town. With more than a few possible suspects, Manny works quietly behind the scenes and uncovers a decades old scheme of greed, revenge, and murder. The allure of art and love compound the challenges for Manny, and as he closes in on the killer, not even he could have anticipated the frightening twist in his investigation or its shocking conclusion. Books will be available for purchase and to be signed.
