On A Dark Tide with Valerie Geary | Orca Books Co-op

June 11 at 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT


Gather ‘round the virtual campfire on June 11th with Portland author Valerie Geary, as we dive into the worlds of self-publishing, copaganda, and writing mystery thrillers as a whole.

From the author of Crooked River & Everything We Lost, comes a gripping new novel about one woman’s search for her sister’s killer.

Brett Buchanan never imagined herself returning to Crestwood, Washington where her sister was murdered twenty years ago. But when she’s offered a detective position with the local police department, she decides to take the job. Between figuring out how to fit in as the squad’s first female detective and caring for her grandmother who is showing signs of dementia, Brett doesn’t have much time to think about her sister’s cold case. Then she receives a message from a man claiming to have information about the decade’s-old murder. Before she has a chance to talk with him, his body washes up on a local beach.

Truth always comes at a price, but Brett won’t stop searching. Not until her sister’s killer is finally brought to justice.

Valerie Geary is the author of Everything We Lost and Crooked River, which was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award. With her newest release, On A Dark Tide, Valerie is branching out into the world of indie publishing, which has proven to be quite the adventure. Valerie lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and a dachshund mix named Charlie Waffles. When she’s not writing, Valerie enjoys hiking, exploring the Pacific Northwest, tending to her vegetable garden, and reading books with sad endings.
