Literary Las Vegas: Eddie Lee

Thomas Larkin was more than a friend, he was a brother to Chicago private investigator Adrian Cain. It was Larkin, a gifted psychologist, who helped Cain face the demons lurking in his mind, remnants of his time as a Marine in Afghanistan. One of those demons, a ghost Cain thought he'd sent to a well-deserved hell himself, returns with a dark agenda in Las Vegas author Eddie Lee's sci-fi thriller "Nemesis." Lee is scheduled to speak as part of the Desert Author Series from 2:30 to 3:20 p.m. Sept. 13 at the Sahara West Library, 9600 W. Sahara Ave. Lee also plans to sign copies of his science fiction thriller "Nemesis" at 1 p.m. Sept. 19 at the 2191 N. Rainbow Blvd. Barnes & Noble.
