Please join me at the University City Library on Mon. evening, May 6, when I’ll be reading from and signing copies of my new thriller, The Antiquities Dealer (A David Greenberg Mystery), from 6:30 - 7:30 pm in the library auditorium.

The story, set in both St. Louis and Israel and featuring a quirky mix of mystery, religion, and science fiction, is sprinkled with local references, such as the U. City Loop, Blueberry Hill, Central West End, Left Bank Books—even the ill-reputed Coral Courts Motel.

Reviewers have drawn comparisons between The Antiquities Dealer and Dan Brown’s novels, with Readers’ Favorite describing it as “...taking you on a journey to find what seems to be impossible.”

The Plot. The story opens as David Greenberg, a Central West End gallery owner, receives a call from his long-lost love, Miriam Solomon, who’d moved to Israel decades ago. Agreeing to meet at Blueberry Hill, Miriam enlists David’s help in locating a missing relic of singular importance to an ancient Israeli society. But to do so, he must first decipher an obscure clue to its whereabouts. The tension quickly escalates—becoming increasingly more deadly—as David travels from St. Louis to Israel and back, finding more questions than answers—and unsure of whom to trust.

This FREE event is open to all, with plenty of free parking in the lot. Refreshments will be served. Book sales to be handled by Subterranean Books. The Antiquities Dealer is also available in Kindle and Nook formats. The audio book version will be available soon.
