A Conversation with Author Peter Steiner
Thursday, August 23, 7:00-8:00 p.m.
The Resistance is the fourth novel in the Louis Morgon Thriller series written by Peter Steiner. His previous novel, The Terrorist, was named one of the Top Ten Crime Novels of the Year by Booklist. During World War II, in the French village inhabited by Steiner’s series detective Louis Morgon, some people collaborated while others resisted. Decades later, Louis Morgon finds evidence hidden under the floor of his house of a long-ago massacre of the town’s resisters. He inadvertently unleashes a firestorm of danger, deception, and murder.
