Join Chevalier’s on Thursday, November 19th at 7:00pm, for a reading and signing with bestselling author and screenwriter Derek Haas. Derek will be signing his new book, A Different Lie.
Now a new dad, the infamous Silver Bear finds himself staying up late for feedings and changing diapers—all while leading the double life of a contract killer. But a child forces him to weigh selfishness versus safety. Continue his line of work, and he’ll always wonder if he’s putting his child’s life at risk. Columbus is surprised to find that his next mark is another assassin: a brash, young killer named Castillo. Castillo is an assassin on the rise. Even Columbus is impressed by his tenacity and talent—and as he closes in on his target, he realizes that Castillo is a younger version of himself.
Derek Haas is the author of the novels The Silver Bear, Columbus, and Dark Men, which make up The Assassin Trilogy. Derek co-created “Chicago Fire” and executive produces “Chicago P.D.” for NBC. He also co-wrote the screenplays for 3:10 to Yuma, Wanted, and The Double. He lives in Los Angeles with his family.
Derek is a longtime friend of Chevalier’s and Larchmont local, and we are honored to host this event! Stop by for entertaining conversation and a copy of his engrossing new book!
