Mystery Author Darden North to Sign Novels at Mississippi Picnic in NYC

____________________________________

Date: 6/5/2010
Time: Noon til Dusk
Location: Central Park East Meadow between 5th Avenue and 97th Street

Darden North will join other native Mississippi authors and artists at the 2010 Mississippi Picnic in Central Park East Meadow in the Mississippi Authors tent. Copies of Norths three novels will be available for purchase and signing.

The New York Mississippi Picnic was started in 1979 as the brainchild of a handful of native Mississippians living in New York City. The group joined together to create an event to highlight Mississippi’s attributes. The first picnic attracted some 500 individuals, and that number has steadily increased over the years; the 2010 picnic is expected to attract more than 2,000 picnic-goers! In addition to the picnic and live music, there will be a Mississippi Authors Tent where mystery and suspense author Darden North and others will have their work available for purchase and autographing.

Brief synopsis of Novels by Darden North, MD ...

HOUSE CALL While Dr. Knox Chamblee struggles to build a medical practice in Mississippi, an attractive nurse is found floating in a bloody bathtub and a doctor falls to his frozen death from a deer stand. The police suspect Dr. Aslyn Hawes, Chamblee’s female partner and nemesis, whose jealousy of the victims cloaks her in suspicion. As the investigation unfolds in House Call and a psychotic killer is to strike again, Chamblee’s career is sabotaged by reverse sexual discrimination.

POINTS OF ORIGIN In Points of Origin the death of a young woman costs Dr. Dan Foxworth his plastic surgery dynasty and his life. A medical school reject, Foxworth’s son Sher becomes a fireman, pitting him against an arsonist hired to torch the mansion of the same malpractice attorney who ruined his father. When the lawyer’s house explodes, the origin of the flames does not rest alone with the arsonist. Fierce retribution is unleashed as Sher Foxworth avenges his family’s destruction.

FRESH FROZEN After movie star Allyn Saxton survives a string of broken relationships, she enters a reproduction center to have a baby. Her plans of seclusion are misguided when an Internet spy breaks through the center’s security to steal her frozen embryos. But there is competition. A nearly-bankrupt policeman and his tormented wife are also patients, the wife so desperate for pregnancy that she plans to kill. Human reproductive tissue becomes a fatal commodity in Fresh Frozen.

TERRIFIC REVIEW OF THE AUDIOBOOK VERSION: "THE 5 MANNERS OF DEATH"

Hi Readers (and Listeners):

I am happy to share reader and fellow author Michael Hartnett's review of the audiobook version of my latest thriller, "The 5 Manners of Death,"  narrarted by Steven Jay Cohen:

A Terrific Listen to a Memorable Mystery

"Boy, does Darden North have a way with the scene, whether in a drawing room, classroom, or operating room. Since the bodies keep dropping around our heroine, the surgeon Diana, in "The 5 Manners of Death," those scenes are physically and psychologically memorable. What a lively and satisfying listen. This foray is my first with an audio book. With a breathless intensity that captures the novel’s Southern flavor, narrator Steven Jay Cohen does justice to the fine writing, deftly capturing the eloquence, the snappy dialogue, and the building suspense.  As the title suggests, the victims are delivered in many forms of termination--all punctuated by those intermingled human dramas of stress, suspicion, and blame. All of t…

5 Star Review of "House Call" -- Michael Robbins' Narration of Audiobook Version

5 Star Review Published on Audible.com   "A Murder Mystery That Is So Much More"  Darden North’s "House Call" is a murder mystery, but it is so much more. The novel simultaneously tells tales of reverse discrimination, of the treacheries imbedded in diet/anti-depressant pharmaceuticals, of the financial intricacies of the new age of medicine, and of even the psycho-social legacies of Southern miscegenation.

North has a sharp eye for characterization whether it’s the haughty Dr. Hawes or the amiable Dr. Gwinn. He deftly shifts perspective across a variety of intriguing storylines, all the while marking his prose with astute commentary (“Whether the body or their relationship was natural or unnatural did not seem to matter”). Centered on the young male OB-GYN, Knox Ch…
