Local author John David Mann will read from his latest thriller, Blind Fear, third in a series of thrillers following Navy SEAL Finn.   Mann, & his co-author, Brandon Webb are authors of numerous books, including the earlier Finn books: Steel Fear, which is set on an aircraft carrier, & was named one of the best books of the year by Publisher’s Weekly; Cold Fear, which takes place largely in Iceland; & now Blind Fear, which takes place in & around Puerto Rico.   Book signing to follow the reading.   “I can‘t think of another recent series as suspenseful & sensitive to political issues,” says Amherst Books co-owner, Nat Herold.
