ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27; 7 PM

ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS will introduce his mystery novel, Fourth Down and Out. It features Andy Hayes, a former Ohio State quarterback, whose football career had been tarnished and who is now a private investigator. A client has asked him to retrieve a laptop and erase a troublesome video from its hard drive. It seems simple enough. But that was before someone breaks into Andy’s apartment in Columbus, armed with a shotgun, and takes the laptop. Then the FBI shows up asking questions and Andy learns that there is a growing list of people with a claim on the computer, all of them with secrets they don’t want uncovered. When one of those people ends up dead, Andy has his hands full convincing authorities he’s not responsible. SWALLOW PRESS
