GALVESTON — Galveston Bookshop will host a book signing event with authors John T. Davis and James R. Dennis, two of the three-man writing team who publish under the pen name Miles Arceneaux, who has been called “the Dashiell Hammett of the Texas Gulf Coast” from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 22 at 317 23rd St.

The three are a group of Texas-based writer friends who penned, as a literary lark, the collectively-written novel “Thin Slice of Life,” a book that has given birth to a series of witty Gulf Coast thrillers based on its central characters.

Readers who fancy gritty and colorful mystery yarns steeped in gulf salt air and down-home waterfront locales will not want to miss out on Charlie Sweetwater and his adventures.

Davis and Dennis will be on hand signing “La Salle’s Ghost” and “A Thin Slice of Life.”
