Westborough: Authors Ray Daniel, Steve Ulfelder at Tatnuck Bookseller

Terminated jpegSteve Ulfelder CoverWestborough – Ray Daniel, author of “Terminated,” and Steve Ulfelder, author of “Wolverine Bros. Freight & Storage,” will be at Tatnuck Bookseller Saturday, Sept. 13, from 1-3 p.m.

 

In Terminated, Uber-geek Tucker and his beautiful wife, Carol, developed controversial security software together until the day he was fired and she was murdered. Now, six months later, another software engineer is dead, bringing new clues to light in Carol’s cold case. Haunted by the memory of his wife, Tucker is determined to track down the truth behind the killings. He pulls strings to get hired back into MantaSoft, but office politics turns deadly as Tucker takes on the FBI, Russian mobsters, and a psychopath known as the Duct Tape Killer.

 

In Wolverine Bros. Freight & Storage, Conway Sax is a man on a mission, this time in Los Angeles, where he uses his race-driving experience in a desperate bid to rescue Kenny Spoon, a washed-up TV star who’s been kidnapped. It’s a favor for Kenny’s mother Eudora, Conway’s dear friend and a fellow member of the Barnburners, his tight-knit maverick AA group. After hauling Kenny back to Massachusetts, Conway finds himself caught between Eudora and her two sons: Kenny, and Harmon, a cop who resents his talented, troubled half-brother.

 

All are welcome to stop in and meet the authors. Tatnuck Bookseller is located at 18 Lyman St., the Westborough Shopping Center.
