The Skinvestigator Author, Terry Cronin to Appear at the Miami Book Fair International

By SOP newswire2

This year is the 28th edition of The Miami Book Fair International which is once again taking over the streets of downtown Miami. Every fall, voracious readers look forward to this intellectual paradise where they can peruse great new books in the hope of finding a treasure at the street fair.

Terry Cronin, the author of the critically acclaimed The Skinvestigator detective novels and the horror-adventure comic book series, Students of the Unusual, is making his first visit to the Miami Book Fair.

The Skinvestigator novels follow the adventures of Dr. Harry Poe, a Miami dermatologist, as he tries to help the Metro-Dade police solve a murder involving tattoos, illicit cosmetic surgery, and the flesh trade. Much of the story relies on the international flavor of Miami and the Florida skin cancer epidemic. The Midwest Book Review reports that "The Skinvestigator:Tramp Stamp is filled with great writing, memorable characters, and fast pacing that delves into an underground world that is part of the Sunshine State." One reviewer called The Skinvestigator -"Skincredible."

"I`m really excited to get to appear at this event because the setting of The Skinvestigator novels is the beautiful city of Miami," said Cronin who lived in Miami for three years. Although he now lives in Melbourne, Florida, Cronin says returning to Miami is like "coming home." He will be appearing at the Street Fair on Saturday, Nov 19th.

The Miami Book Fair takes place from Nov. 13 to Nov. 20 with author readings and cultural gatherings at the Wolfson Campus of Miami Dade College in Downtown Miami. The Street Fair commences at the same location on Friday, Nov. 18, and continues on Saturday and Sunday, November 19-20, with a daily schedule of author readings as well as exhibitor`s booths representing publishers and booksellers.  Throughout the weekend, there will be music, food vendors, and celebrity author events.
