Literary Las Vegas

Nevada author Elizabeth Lowell has more than 20 million copies of her books in print, from “Forget Me Not” and “A Woman Without Lies” to “Autumn Lover” and “Winter Fire.”

Her newest novel, “Dangerous Refuge,” follows a police detective investigating his uncle’s death on a rural Nevada ranch and his unlikely teaming with the woman who found his uncle dead.
