In local author Bart Schneider’s novel Nameless Dame, a mysterious murder is the talk of the town in Guerneville. Without giving too much away, this gripping mystery travels around Sonoma County in search of information linked to the crime. It’s just like getting in the middle of a real police investigation in the local neighborhood, without having to deal with the actual life-risking danger that’s involved. It’s up to Minnesota private investigator Augie Boyer to uncover the strange schemes happening up and down the coast before it’s too late. Get even closer to the action when Schneider reads and discusses his book on Thursday, March 15, at Readers’ Books (130 E.
