THE CADAVER’S BALL is a novel of revenge and love and is the third mystery produced by Dr. Atkins. His other two titles, THE PORTRAIT and RISK FACTOR, were also published by St. Martin’s and will be available for sale that day.

The book’s launch party will be replete with a “live” window display that heralds in the Halloween season. Dr. Atkins will be on hand to sign copies of his books, answer questions, and to possibly take notes for characters in future novels.
