The Herald wrote about Snohomish County resident and author Neil Low back in April when the Seattle Police Officer was just about to release his latest thriller, “Unreasonable Persuasion.” At the time, his publicist had predicted this book would be a hit.

Well, she was right.

The book was released by Tigress Publishing in September and it ended the month as the No. 1 best selling mystery trade paperback sold in Seattle, as determined by the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association.

To get the word out about the “Unreasonable Persuasion” launch, Low will be signing copies of his novels at two Borders Books locations: from 4 to 7 p.m. Oct. 22 at Borders Books in the Everett Mall, 1402 SE Everett Mall Way, and from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 29 at Borders Books in the Alderwood Mall, 3000 184th St. SW, Lynnwood.

In case you are unfamiliar with Low’s work, his books — “Unreasonable Persuasion” is third in a series — are written as a murder mystery series based on a main character, Alan Stewart, with settings such as Seattle’s exotic bordellos in Chinatown.

In this newest story, Stewart tangles with the White Dragon and finds himself paired with the beautiful and dangerous Vera Deward to figure out if a well-known and aging heiress has departed for a glamorous honeymoon as her much younger and newly acquired husband insists or has she been murdered.
