Writer Gregg Hurwitz has penned issues of Wolverine and Punisher for Marvel and Batman and Penguin for DC. Today, Hurwitz will be wearing his novelist hat as he reads from and signs his latest release, Tell No Lies. In Lies, Daniel Brasher accidentally receives a note that reads: ''Admit what you've done or you will bleed for it. You have 'til November 15 at midnite.'' The deadline has passed and the man the note was intended for has been murdered. Daniel gets more notes, each demanding that the intended recipient admit some unknown offense and each delivered too late for Daniel or the police to prevent the murder promised if the recipient doesn't make a full confession. Then Daniel gets his own note — ''Admit what you’ve done…'' Now not only does Daniel not know who the killer is, he doesn't even know what crime he's supposed to confess to. A New York Times best-selling author, Hurwitz is known for crafting intricate thrillers.
