Murder Among Friends

Murder & Mayhem in Chicago's Sophmore Session Was Terrific!

Murder and Mayhem in Chicago Lori and Dana

Our happy band of MAF members who braved both the weather and the St. Patrick's Day parade in downtown Chicago, had a great time at the convention again this year. Members particularly liked hearing Jeffrey Deaver and Gillian Flynn interview each other, seeing and talking to our friend Lori Rader-Day, and think master of ceremonies Eric Beetner is the bees knees! Here are this year's featured moments (courtesy of MAF member, Bev) at the con!
