Harlequin Trade Publishing is launching a new imprint, Hanover Square Press! To celebrate this momentous day we're hosting debut author Neil Olson for the launch of his first book The Black Painting, which is the first book to be released by Hanover Square Press.

Neil's The Black Painting tells the story of a grandfather of an old-money family who calls for four cousins, each with heavily contrasting personalities, to come to the family mansion. None of the cousins have visited the estate since childhood when an unsolved theft took place. The item lost was a supposedly cursed Goya painting, rumored to drive any onlooker mad.

Any hopes of a enjoyable family reunion are dashed when the cousins arrive to find their grandfather dead, staring at the spot that once held the painting. Family secrets are revealed, tensions rise, but will the mystery be solved?

Join us in the Rare Book Room as Neil Olson shares his work and his writing process, and celebrates the new Hanover Square Press!
