Bruce Borgos: The Bitter Past

July 22 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Bruce Borgos’ novel The Bitter Past begins a compelling series set in the high desert of Nevada, featuring Sheriff Porter Beck. Borgos will read from his book and sign copies.

Porter Beck is the sheriff in the high desert of Nevada, north of Las Vegas. Born and raised there, he left to join the Army, where he worked in Intelligence, deep in the shadows in far off places. Now heโ€™s back home, doing the same lawmanโ€™s job his father once did, before his father started to develop dementia. All is relatively quiet in this corner of the world, until an old, retired FBI agent is found killed. He was brutally tortured before he was killed and clues at the scene point to a mystery dating back to the early days of the nuclear age. If that wasnโ€™t strange enough, a current FBI agent shows up to help Beckโ€™s investigation.
