Please join us on Wednesday, September 3rd at 5:00 p.m. for a reception to celebrate the release of the debut thriller by Todd Moss, The Golden Hour, about an American diplomat in Africa. The novel is the first in the Judd Ryker series about a college professor working inside the State Department to hasten America’s responses to international crises. In The Golden Hour, Ryker finds himself with just 100 hours to reverse a coup in Mali, rescue a kidnapped Peace Corps volunteer, and stop a terrorist attack on the U.S. Embassy. But first, he must uncover the real enemy!
