Upstate SC Mystery Author John Carenen to Celebrate Launch of New Novel

Upstate South Carolina author John Carenen will be celebrating the launch of his latest novel, The Face on the Other Side (FPS, paperback, $16.95), a new book in his Thomas O'Shea mystery series, at an in-store book launch party at Fiction Addiction on Thursday, March 8th, from 5-7pm.

The Face on the Other SideHe'd promised Sheriff Payne that he wouldn't take any more matters into his own hands. So, when on a leisurely morning drive, SEAL-trained Thomas O'Shea sees two girls attacking a boy on a sidewalk, he opts not to intervene. When the boy is later murdered in the local hospital, though, all promises are off.

What seems at the start to be a simple case of gang activity turns out to be far more. Even O'Shea, who has seen more than his share of evil, could not have guessed what is about to transpire...

John Carenen About the author:
John Carenen, a native of Clinton, Iowa, has been a featured humor columnist in newspapers in North and South Carolina. His novel, Son-up, Son-down, was published by the National Institute of Mental Health. His debut Thomas O'Shea thriller, Signs of Struggle, was followed by A Far Gone Night. And now, The Face on the Other Side continues the exploits of this darkly humorous protagonist and a uniquely Midwestern cast of quirky characters hanging out in the picturesque village of Rockbluff, Iowa. John recently retired from his years as an English professor at Newberry College in Newberry, SC. A big fan of his family, the Iowa Hawkeyes, and the Boston Red Sox, he and his long-suffering wife life just north of Greenville, SC.
