Just in case you missed it, Readers' Books owner Andy Weinberger is proud to present his first novel, An Old Man's Game: An Amos Parisman Mystery. It's a PI novel like you've never seen before, featuring retired private eye Amos Parisman, who is hired by the local temple's board when a controversial rabbi drops dead over his matzoh ball soup at Canter's Deli in Los Angeles. As he looks into what seems to be a simple, tragic accident, Amos uncovers a world of treachery and hurt that shakes a large L.A. Jewish community to its core.

The book launch party is on Friday, November 29th at 4:30pm here at Readers' Books and we're looking forward to seeing everyone! There will be a reception featuring close up magic tricks from Tobias Weinberger followed by a reading and Q&A from Andy--and, of course, book signing! And if you want to cut down on your wait time at the event, we're taking paid pre-orders for the book. Come on in, buy the book, and pick it up on launch day--as easy as that.
