Please join as for a very special Noir at the Bar event launching Scott Phillips' newest novel That Left Turn at Albuquerque.

Douglas Rigby, attorney-at-law, is bankrupt. He's just sunk his last $200,000-a clandestine "loan" from his last remaining client, former bigshot TV exec Glenn Haskill-into a cocaine deal gone wrong. The lesson? Never trust anyone else with the dirty work. Desperate to get back on top, Rigby formulates an art forgery scheme involving one of Glenn's priceless paintings, a victimless crime. But for Rigby to pull this one off, he'll need to negotiate a whole cast of players with their own agendas, including his wife, his mistress, an embittered art forger, Glenn's resentful nurse, and the man's money-hungry nephew. One misstep, and it all falls apart-will he be able to save his skin? Written with hard-knock sensibility and wicked humor, Scott Phillips's newest novel will cement Phillips as one of the great crime writers of the 21st century.

Scott Phillips is a screenwriter, photographer and the author of seven novels and numerous short stories. His bestselling debut novel, The Ice Harvest, was a New York Times Notable Book and was adapted as a major motion picture starring John Cusack and Billy Bob Thornton. He is the winner of the California Book Award, as well as being a finalist for the Edgar Award, the Hammett Prize and the CWA Gold Dagger Award. Scott was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, and lived for many years in France. He now lives with his wife and daughter in St. Louis, Missouri.
