Writers Live!

Don't miss this chance to meet with a popular local writer

NEW HAVEN - Author Karen Olson will discuss her new book, "The Missing Ink: a Tattoo Shop Mystery," from 6 to 7 p.m. July 8 at the New Haven Free Public Library, 133 Elm St., New Haven.

As is says at

Brett Kavanaugh is a tattoo artist and owner of The Painted Lady, catering to high-profile clients in Las Vegas. But in her free time, she does a little investigating too - because murder really gets under her skin. . . .
When a girl makes an appointment to get devotion ink with the name of her fiancé embedded in a heart, Brett takes the job, but the girl never shows. The next thing Brett knows, the police are looking for her mysterious client and the name she wanted on the tattoo isn't the name of her fiancé.
An alliance with an unlikely partner leads Brett to a dead body, a suave Englishman, and an Elvis karaoke bar. And who is the tattooed stranger stalking her? Brett draws lines between the clues, unwittingly putting herself in danger. But she intends to see justice done, since death, like a tattoo, is permanent. . .

Olson also is the author of the Annie Seymour mystery series, which are set in New Haven and feature a take names, hot shot reporter who finds deadly stories in the Elm City while also keeping her own spicy love life alive. Read Olson's blog at
