Author Event with Robert Wangard robert wangard framed mclean and eakin booksellers author event

Please welcome Robert Wangard, author of the Pete Thorsen mystery series, for a visit to McLean & Eakin Booksellers on Wednesday, August 16th from 2 – 4 p.m. Robert will be on-site for a book signing of his latest installment in the series, Victim. This is a free event.


When Pete’s friend is shot and killed while jet skiing, a firestorm of suspicion and tension roils the quiet lake community. It’s personal for Pete, too, because his teenage daughter was only ten feet away when it happened. Then Pete discovers that the dead man not only had been leading a double life, but he’d also been forging his signature on documents. All bets are off as Pete’s forced to investigate on his own. In the days that follow, he finds himself crossing the line at times as he unravels a tangle of deep-seated grudges and ruined lives and finally exposes the stunning and bizarre truth. 


Bob Wangard splits his time between Chicago and “the lake” in northwest Michigan. After putting the practice of law in his rearview mirror, he gravitated toward crime fiction and now writes in the genre full time. Target was his first mystery thriller, followed by Hard Water Blues, Malice, Deceit, Payback, Stalked and Framed. He is a member of the Mystery Writers of America and the Short Mystery Fiction Society.
