Join the Inquiring Minds team as we welcome Poughkeepsie-based author, John Essick, as he reads from his debut novel, "Last Respects." In this mystery, former reporter Wes Byrne, returns to his hometown to attend the funeral of a childhood friend, NOT to investigate the unsolved murder. But suddenly, his car’s been stolen and he’s the focus of investigations into new murders that appear to center around his return. Wes has no choice but to go against his better judgment and, fueled with more than a few tumblers of Powers whiskey, expose the murderers to avoid becoming the next victim.
