Cold Black Hearts, my new novel, third in the "border trilogy" after Missing White Girl and River Runs Red (and the one that contains hints linking all three together) comes out in June from Penguin/Jove. There'll be a couple of signings in May, and more in June, and I should be working on a website for it.
