Program Description


You are cordially invited to witness the debut of WHITE LIGHTNING, Melissa Yi's latest Hope Sze thriller that's the bee's knees. Feel free to rest your gams and mix up a cocktail with the other cool cats while Melissa spins a tale of lookers and hatchet men and white-hot lightning.

If the stars align, artisan distiller Nathalie Gamache of Gin*Eco*Logic will teach us how to mix a Corpse Reviver #2.

Check out Melissa's website for more information.



From Hooch Highway to Homicide

Hope Sze escapes for a romantic weekend away at the Rumrunner’s Rest, a Roaring Twenties inn once celebrated both for Prohibition’s best alcohol and the smoothest jazz bands north of the Detroit River.

Then a convention of fictional villains overrun the tavern, her friend glimpses a ghost, and Hope uncovers a grisly surprise in the fireplace that may be related to Al Capone, the infamous gangster.

At least two people disappeared from this very inn, and one soul will not rest in peace.

Tonight, unless Hope unravels a century’s worth of clues, death will collect several more lives. Including the one, she holds most dear.
