Bainbridge Island writer Tom Kelly, best known as a sportswriter and real estate reporter at The Seattle Times, as well as the host of a nationally-syndicated KIRO radio program, reads here tonight from Cold Crossover (Crabman Press). This is the first in what might turn into a series of Northwest-based mystery novels. "Cold Crossover is a riveting mystery based on the drama of small-town high school basketball, complete with the missed shot no local will ever forget. Along the way, Tom Kelly takes the reader from the Northwest's wild frontier days to its equally crazed present as a real-estate mecca. Kelly weaves the ferries, crabbers, and timber-men of his region into a timeless and page-turning tale." - Jim Ragsdale, Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
