Author P.J. Allen, of Frederick, will do a book signing from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday at En Masse, 114 N. Market St., Frederick.
Her recent book, “Dead Reckoning in Frederick,” is set in the city. “As with my previous books, a social issue drives the story,” said Allen in a news release. “In ‘Dead Reckoning in Frederick,’ I wrote the story to expose how the rich and powerful can prey on those most vulnerable and that sometimes there are unimaginable forces helping to hold those who exploit accountable.”
