Live the Mystery 

Mystery author Ridley Pearson knows his readers well. They want suspense and action that doesn't sacrifice plot or the quality of the writing. Enter The Risk Agent, Pearson's newest novel: It's the first book in a series, focusing on the Rutherford Risk law firm during negotiations to free a hostage held captive in Shanghai. Seeing as how the firm is seriously unequipped to handle this on its own, help is outsourced. Jon Knox and Grace Chu, a civilian and an accountant with military training, respectively, are brought in to help save the day. What follows are beautiful depictions of China and a lot of action. Pearson drops by the Saint Louis County Library Headquarters (1640 South Lindbergh Boulevard) from 7 to 8 p.m. to discuss and sign copies of The Risk Agent.
