Murder in Haxford: A Pignon Scorbion Mystery by Rick Bleiweiss
February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join author and Ashland resident Rick Bleiweiss at Bloomsbury Books to celebrate the launch of his latest novel in the Pignon Scorbion series, MURDER IN HAXFORD!
A delightful day in 1910 at the Haxford Spring Fair turns horrifying and deadly when a balloonist plummets to the earth from the blue skies above—though it’s soon discovered that this unfortunate corpse was not done in by his precipitous plunge but instead from an arrow fatally lodged in his chest. Unraveling the twisted web of intrigue that took the man’s life requires the expert skills of Haxford’s brilliant and sartorially splendid Chief Inspector Pignon Scorbion.
