Television legend and notable author Alan Shayne will be signing copies of his new book Finding Sylvia at The Hickory Stick Bookshop. A movie producer searches obsessively from a small New England town to Hollywood, New York, London, Israel, Spain, and Marrakech for a titled British woman who has mysteriously disappeared. Along the way he will be confounded by the many answers to “Who is Sylvia?”
“Finding Sylvia is a gripping, suspenseful mystery that will have readers turning the pages nonstop. I was captivated from the very beginning of the story, a tale of passion, love, and one man’s quest for the truth about the woman he can’t get over. Alan Shayne has written an unforgettable novel.” –Reader’s Favorite, 5 stars
