About the Book: Over My Dead Body is an unputdownable story of murder, revenge and betrayal from international number one bestseller Jeffrey Archer. The clock is ticking in this rollercoaster ride of a thriller. In London, the Metropolitan Police set up a new Unsolved Murders Unit―a cold case squad―to catch the criminals nobody else can. In Geneva, millionaire art collector Miles Faulkner―convicted of forgery and theft―was pronounced dead two months ago. So why is his unscrupulous lawyer still representing a dead client? On a luxury liner en route to New York, the battle for power within a wealthy dynasty is about to turn to murder. And at the heart of all three investigations are Detective Chief Inspector William Warwick, rising star of the department, and ex-undercover agent Ross Hogan, brought in from the cold. But can they catch the killers before it’s too late?

This event is hosted by the Tewksbury Public Library in collaboration with Haley Booksellers and many other Massachusetts Public Libraries.

Poetry Reading with Dora Mwangi
Thursday, September 16th 7PM

“I, You, Us. Little Fires That Float. At a time that seemed to be the tipping point between losing and loving myself, writing poetry unintentionally led to self-discovery while attempting to make sense of society, seeking meaning, and finding my place in this world. In the midst of internal and external chaos, I searched for peace and found my savior: me.” ~Dora Mwangi
