On Wednesday, September 22nd at 7:30pm PDT Warwick's will host Matt Witten as he discusses his new book, The Necklace, in conversation with Matt Coyle. Matt Witten is a TV writer, novelist, playwright and screenwriter who has been writing for television for the past twenty years, including such shows as House, Pretty Little Liars, Law & Order, CSI: Miami, Medium, JAG, The Glades, Homicide, Judging Amy, and Women’s Murder Club. He has written four mystery novels that were published by Signet: Breakfast at Madeline’s, Grand Delusion, Strange Bedfellows, and The Killing Bee. The Necklace has been optioned for film by Appian Way and Cartel Pictures, with Leonardo DiCaprio attached as producer.

Susan Lentigo’s daughter was raped and murdered twenty years ago – and now, at long last, this small-town waitress sets out to drive all the way from upstate New York to North Dakota to witness the killer’s execution. But she discovers shocking new evidence on her journey that leads her to suspect the condemned man is innocent – and the real killer is still free. Even worse, her prime suspect has a young daughter who’s at terrible risk. With no money and no time to spare, Susan must uncover the truth before an innocent man gets executed and another little girl gets killed.

But the FBI refuses to reopen the case. They – and Susan’s own mother - believe she’s just having an emotional breakdown. Reaching deep, Susan finds an inner strength she never knew she had. With the help of two unlikely allies – a cynical, defiant teenage girl and the retired cop who made the original arrest – Susan battles the FBI to put the real killer behind bars and get justice for the condemned man – and her daughter – at last.
