Killer Thriller Tuesday: Celebrate Publication of Bollinger’s and Meredith’s Latest Novels

No reason to let the suspense kill you—you can be among the first to read award-winning thrillers by Tallahassee writers Darryl Bollinger and Donna Meredith.

Their dual book launch party will rock the Mockingbird Café on North Monroe St. in Tallahassee. The event is Tuesday, Feb. 11, from 5:30-8 p.m. The party will feature light hors d’oeuvres, an opportunity to chat with the authors and buy signed copies of their books, and music by Doug and Lisa Jernigan beginning at 7 p.m. All are welcome to attend.

Bollinger’s new title is The Pill Game. In the novel, a reluctant Florida clinic manager risks it all to battle a prescription drug ring after a chance encounter with an abused young girl.

Bollinger worked twenty-eight years in the health care industry. He has written three novels, including the award-winning A Case of Revenge, and is establishing a reputation as a master of the health care suspense thriller.

Meredith’s latest, Wet Work, evokes a Carl Hiaasen novel. It features a principled young scientist-hero, Summer Cassidy, who tries to save Florida’s water supply from a corrupt corporation. The manuscript won a Florida Writers Association award for thriller/suspense novels.

A retired teacher and freelance writer, Meredith frequently contributes to the Tallahassee Democrat, Goldenseal magazine, and Southern Literary Review. Her previous titles— The Glass Madonna, The Color of Lies, and Magic in the Mountains—also racked up awards from the Florida Authors and Publishers Association and Florida Writers Association. 

Bollinger and Meredith both served as president of the Tallahassee Writers Association and still have active roles in the organization.
