Annie Bloom's welcomes back local author Cindy Brown to read from her sixth Ivy Meadows mystery, Killalot.

A jouster, a playwright, and a detective walk into a faire...but it's no joke when one ends up dead. Actress and part-time PI Ivy Meadows is thrilled when she learns that the famous playwright behind Hello Dolly Madison is in Arizona. Not so much when she realizes he's a suspect in the murder of a Renaissance faire jouster. As is her friend Riley. And about a thousand other people, all disguised in Renaissance costume during the fatal jousting match. When Ivy is hired to investigate the killing, she goes undercover as a Cockney belly dancer at the faire and finagles her way into the playwright's Kennedy-inspired version of Camelot--as Marilyn Monroe, no less. Then, in the midst of her toughest case ever, Ivy has to solve another dilemma: Will she follow her lifelong dream of being an actor or settle down with the love of her life? The murder investigation, the play, and real life come together in a twist that begs the question: Is there a happily-ever-after for anyone?
