If in several months a conspiracy-theorist uncle calls to tell you that a collection of mummified remains and some cryptically inscribed gold have been found in the Rockies and that they reveal that America was founded on a lie, know that said uncle has probably been enjoying the work of James Rollins a tad too much. Its easy enough to do, or so say the millions who have made Rollins a best-seller many times over. Today at Murder by the Book hell discuss and sign The Devil Colony, the newest installment of his Sigma Force series, in which the aforementioned discovery leads his well-known squad of scientific investigators from Yellowstone to Iceland to Fort Knox and sets Americas intelligence agencies at serious odds. Even if you know nothing about Sigma Force, Rollins himself is interesting enough actually named Jim Czajkowski, he was a veterinarian before he started writing. 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. 2342 Bissonnet.
