Louise Hare, author of HARLEM AFTER MIDNIGHT - a virtual Boswell event
Boswell Book Company presents a special afternoon event with Louise Hare, author of Harlem After Midnight, the second book in the Canary Club Mystery series. In conversation with Rachel Copeland of Boswell.

Harlem, 1936: Lena Aldridge grew up in a cramped corner of London, hearing stories of New York City from her father. But now her father is dead, and she’s newly arrived and alone, chasing a dream that has quickly dried up. When Will Goodman—the handsome musician she met on the crossing from England—offers for her to stay with his friends in Harlem, she jumps at the chance to get to know him better and see if she can find any trace of the family she might have remaining. Just as Lena discovers the stories her father once told her were missing giant pieces of information, she also starts to realize the man she’s falling too fast and too hard for has secrets of his own. And they might just place a target on her back. Especially when she is drawn to the brightest stage in town.

Rachel loves the first book in the series, Miss Aldridge Regrets: "There's nothing better than a deftly plotted historical mystery - I really was guessing the whole time! But the real star here is Hare's smooth navigation through the issues surrounding Lena's parentage, her ability to pass as white amongst society's upper echelons, and her discomfort with the idea of leaving her father's people, and her people, behind in favor of an easier life. I can't wait to eagerly follow this new mystery series for years."

Louise Hare is the London-based author of Miss Aldridge Regrets. Her debut novel, This Lovely City, was published in the UK to wide acclaim, and was a Between the Covers Book Club Pick on BBC Two. She has an MA in creative writing from the University of London.
