LEESBURG — An opportunity to support the Animal Welfare League of Kosciusko County, through a book signing of Richard Rose’s latest novel “The Gumshoe,” will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, July 15. The purchase of a book will go toward the support of AWL.
The event will take place at the Tippy Creek Winery, 5920 N. 200E, Leesburg.
“The Gumshoe” is a mystery/thriller set in Chicago circa 1947. Private investigator “Matt” McBride runs afoul of corrupt politicians, vicious mobsters and a trigger-happy Texas femme fatale to prove the “suicide” of his best friend was murder.
Rose, who is originally from Kokomo, is also the author of “The Lazarus Conspiracies,” a mystery/thriller, which received an internationally acclaimed award in fiction at the 2015 Pacific Rim Book Festival in Hollywood. Rose spends his time between the lakes area and Chicago following a career as a first vice president with a major investment firm in Chicago. He has a passion for writing, which includes short stores, novels and screenplays.
Rose is currently writing a sequel to “The Lazarus Conspiracies,” titled “Retribution.” Most of the story in the sequel takes place in the Warsaw, North Webster and Syracuse areas.
Both books were published by Savant Books and Publications, Honolulu and are available on Amazon, Ingram and at Barnes & Noble.
