About the Event

An explosive secret. A life in the balance. A showdown that will change everything…

Stacey Abrams was the first African American female gubernatorial nominee of a major party in the history of the U.S. and is one of the country’s most famous political organizers. But she is also a New York Times bestselling author, and now she is celebrating the publication of her debut thriller novel.

When legendary Washington judge Justice Wynn falls into a coma and puts his law clerk, Avery, in control, Avery’s world is turned upside down. Because Justice Wynn had a secret. One that nobody wants to come out…

As Wynn lies in hospital, Avery begins to unravel a sequence of clues, and realizes the puzzle will lead her directly into danger. But how high a price can you put on the truth? And is Avery brave enough to expose the White House itself?

Join Abrams in conversation with fellow novelist and crime writer Karin Slaughter for this exclusive event. Don’t miss the opportunity to spend a thought-provoking and entertaining evening with one of the most compelling political figures in America today.
