On Thursday, June 2nd at 4:00pm PDT Warwick's will host Jodé Millman as she discusses her new book, Hooker Avenue, in conversation with Edwin Hill. Jodé Millman is the multi-award winning author of The Midnight Call, and the bestselling Seats: New York Theatre guidebooks. She's an attorney, a reviewer for Booktrib.com, the host/producer of the Backstage with the Bardavon podcast, and creator of The Writer's Law School. Jodé lives with her family in the Hudson Valley, where she is at work on her next novel in her Queen City Crime series - novels inspired by true crimes in the valley she calls home.

Being a Good Samaritan can be deadly. Single mom and attorney Jessie Martin learns that lesson the hard way.

During a violent spring thunderstorm, Jessie discovers an unconscious woman lying in a roadside ditch and dials 911 for help. Little does she know her compassion will propel her on a collision course with her estranged best friend, Detective Ebony Jones... and one of the most shocking mysteries in the Hudson Valley.

The badly beaten victim, Lissie Sexton, is a prostitute who claims she's escaped from the clutches of a killer. She's also a client of Jessie's new boss, and former nemesis, Jeremy Kaplan, and fearing for Lissie's life, he's hidden her away from everyone.

Ebony is investigating a series of cold cases, and the missing women's profiles bear a striking resemblance to Lissie's. She's willing to stake her career on the hooker being the key to solving the serial crimes. However, Jessie is the major obstacle to her investigation - she won't give up Lissie's location.

Jessie's in a bind. She wants to help Ebony, but she can't compromise her client, her boss, or her legal ethics.

To catch the killer, can Jessie and Ebony put aside their past? Can they persuade Lissie to identify her assailant to prevent future attacks?

Edwin Hill is the Edgar- and Agatha Award-nominated author of three novels in the Hester Thursby series: Little Comfort, The Missing Ones, and Watch Her. His latest novel is the standalone thriller The Secrets We Share. He served as the vice president and editorial director for Bedford/St. Martin's, a division of Macmillan Learning for many years before turning to writing full time. He lives in Roslindale, Massachusetts with his partner Michael and his favorite reviewer, their lab Edith Ann, who likes his first drafts enough to eat them.
