Mystery fans have a great night ahead, with two authors joining us. Jenny Milchman shares Cover of Snow. Lee Child (who knows a thing or two about thrillers) says it's "everything a great suspense novel should be -- tense, emotional, mysterious and satisfying." Raleigh author and artist Lee Mims brings us Hiding Gladys: A Cleo Cooper Mystery. Her solid debut introduces a plucky geologist and her deerhound, who almost lose their lives in NC.
