Mystery author Sheldon Siegel will premiere his seventh Mike Daley mystery, Perfect Alibi, on Saturday, December 4th at 2:00 PM at Mendocino Book Company. The store is located at 102 South School Street, Ukiah. Friends of the Mendocino College Library and Mendocino Book Company are co-sponsoring the event and they will provide light refreshments following the event with Siegel who will also sign copies of his new book.
In Perfect Alibi, Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez face their most compelling challenge yet—and this time, it’s personal. It starts with the sort of phone call that every parent dreads. Bobby Fairchild is an honor student who recently graduated from San Francisco’s prestigious University High School and will attend Columbia in the fall. His father is a respected judge and his mother is a prominent neurosurgeon. For the past six months, Bobby has been dating Mike and Rosie’s sixteen year-old daughter, Grace. When Bobby returns home late from a date with Grace, he finds his father’s lifeless body—the victim of an apparent bludgeoning. A panic-stricken Bobby calls Mike and Rosie for help. By the time they reach Judge Fairchild’s house, Bobby has been arrested for his father’s murder. The only person who can confirm his whereabouts earlier that night is Grace—a seemingly perfect alibi.
A native of Chicago, Sheldon Siegel earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois in 1976 and graduated from the Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California at Berkeley in 1983. He has been in private practice in San Francisco for over twenty years and specializes in corporate and securities law with the firm of Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP . Perfect Alibi is the seventh novel in his series of critically acclaimed, best-selling courtroom dramas featuring San Francisco criminal defense attorneys Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez. His books have sold millions of copies worldwide and have been translated into eight languages.
