mystery

Sammy Keyes and the Kiss Goodbye

by Wendelin Van Draanen

Alfred A. Knopf, 2015

It was sort of bad timing to discover the Sammy Keyes mystery series in its final installment, but not too late to capture the flavor of this hard-boiled crime series for teens. A foreword to this novel is written in the voice of the author and explains that Sammy, the series heroine, is unable to narrate because she is in a coma after being thrown off a stairwell by an assailant.

During this program, Wyoming author Craig Johnson talks about and reads from A Serpent's Tooth, the ninth book in his Walt Longmire Mystery series, which has been adapted for TV: Longmire on the Arts & Entertainment channel.
