When a book series comes to an end, it can feel both exciting and bittersweet, maybe moreso the latter if the series has been a part of your life for a long time. Eliot Pattison knows this firsthand. The author is coming to the Mystery Lovers Bookshop to talk about Bones of the Earth, the recently-released tenth and final book in his award-winning Inspector Shan series. The series follows former Beijing Justice Department inspector Shan Tao Yun as he investigates murders in modern-day Tibet. His first novel, The Skull Mantra, won the Mystery Writers of America’s Edgar Allan Poe Award in 2000 for Best First Novel.
