David Fulmer at Octavia Books

Octavia Books hosts David Fulmer at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, October 24, at their storefront (513 Octavia). Fulmer will be reading from his latest, Eclipse Alley, the much anticipated new installment in the award-winning and critically acclaimed Valentin St. Cyr Mystery series.

In the darkness of a May night in 1916, two “sporting girls” walking home through New Orleans’ Storyville district come upon a body that’s been hideously ravaged. And so begins Eclipse Alley. Valentin, the Creole detective who has spent the previous ten years working the scarlet streets, is drawn into a maze of lies, corruption, and madness, as dark a labyrinth as he navigated in the previous five award-winning and critically-acclaimed mysteries.

” The sense of place is so palpable you can almost hear the music. Fulmer’s writing is crisp and nuanced. Valentin is a hero for whom it’s easy to cheer.” — The Detroit Free Press
