AUTHOR TOBY BALL OCT. 7, TUES. 6:30PM

MEET LOCAL AUTHOR TOBY BALL AS HE TALKS ABOUT HIS NEWEST THRILLER!

Invisible Streets
by Toby Ball

Author Toby Ball "A brilliantly imagined thriller, Invisible Streets is a sprawling, noirish epic of crime and corruption by an author who has been compared to Caleb Carr, James Ellroy, and Jonathan Lethem. Itís the mid-1960s, and the City is a hulking shell of itself. Bohemians, crooks, and snarling anti-Communists have their run of the place, but if Nathan Canada has his way, all this decline and decadence will soon be nothing but a distant memory. His New City Project will paper over the grit and the grime, making the City safe for the rich. According to Canada and his influential allies, the project is the Cityís last best hopeóbut according to everyone else in town, itís a death knell."
