Treasure Coast Essay

This BookMania! author knows crime

This is Paul Janensch with a Treasure Essay about BookMania! to be presented by the Library Foundation of Martin County next Saturday, March 7, from 9 to 5 at Jensen Beach High School.    Authors will appear on five panels.  Being a reader of Florida crime novels, I am especially interested in Lisa Black, who will be on the mystery panel.  She is a latent-print examiner and crime-scene investigator in Cape Coral.  Her latest book is “Close to the Bone.”  The heroine is a forensic scientist for the medical examiner.  One co-worker is missing and another beaten to death.  Above him is written in blood: “Confess.”  On lisa-black.com, the author says the happiest five years of her life were spent in a morgue – the one in Cleveland.  Considering the winter they are having up there, I bet she is glad to be working in Cape Coral.  I’m Paul Janensch.
