As a teacher in the New York City public school system, Tim O’Mara may have learned a thing or two about navigating a crowd. That will be a good skill to have during his book signing at Murder by the Book, since this popular author will be on hand to speak and sign books for avid fans. His latest work, Crooked Numbers, is a compelling read about finding the truth to a horrendous crime committed on two very sheltered, very dead kids in Manhattan. He’s a true wordsmith, and it would be poor judgment — much like what the characters in his new novel show — to miss an event like this.
