_Press Release_

Diana O’Hehir, author of “Dark Aura, a Mystery Novel,” will be at Readers’ Books on Tuesday, February 19, at 7:30 p.m., to talk about Carla Day and her Egyptologist father. Characters from her two earlier mysteries—the plucky Carla and Professor Edward Day, her Alzheimer’s-challenged father—try to unravel the mystery surrounding Tamina Kerry’s fall from a cliff. The gifted and charismatic Tamina was an indigo child, said by those in the know to have a purplish glow. She spoke in metaphors and had told her followers she had something urgent to tell them.

Carla is the deputy sheriff in the town of Stanton’s Mill, an offbeat enclave not far from Berkeley. Carla has few reliable witnesses and her father, who knew the child, confuses her with the ancient Egyptian journeywoman of the dead, Ta-Ent. A hysterical grandmother, a drug-addled young man, a baby, and no straight answers hamper Carla as she tries to break the case–which she does with style, wit, and the author’s wry take on Northern California.

Diana O’Hehir’s first novel “I Wish This War Were Over” was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. She is also a poet and the author of two previous Carla Day mysteries “Murder Never Forgets” and “Erased from Memory.”

Readers’ Books is at 130 E. Napa Street, Sonoma. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 707-939-1779.
