5pm | Borough Hall Courtroom (209 Joralemon Street)
Bestseller lists in America are dominated by crime fiction. What's the attraction to murder and mayhem? And what seperates great mystery writing from the merely good? Hear Lawrence Block (A Drop of the Hard Stuff), Susan Isaacs (As Husbands Go), Persia Walker (Black Orchid Blues), and Peter Blauner (Slipping into Darkness) discussed these topics and more with moderator, Jonathan Santlofer (Anatomy of Fear).
