Reviews of Hide in The New York Times, The Washington Post and other national publications have been very positive.

New York Times Bestselling Author Sara Paretsky, author of the V.I. Warshawski series wrote” You know those books that are wonderful, but the worm in the Bud, makes you shy away from praising because you wish you’d created that prose or those insights? … She understands the streets, kids, the way a PI and a Cop really work. Kudos.”

Ms. Clark will do an interview along with a question-and-answer period with time for photos and book signings.  MVT will provide a copy of Ms. Clark’s latest novel Hide to attendees.
