“Dragony Rising” was awarded First Place for Mysteries in the 2022 Royal Dragonfly Indie Book Awards and named a Notable 100 Indie Book in the 2022 Shelf Unbound Book Awards.

The hard-boiled mystery and crime thriller “Dragony Rising: A Frank Nagler Mystery” by Michael Stephen Daigle will be displayed by self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. The literary festival will take place on April 22-23, 2023, at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA.

“Dragony Rising” is the fifth book in the “Frank Nagler Mystery” series. It tells a story of a detective, Frank Nagler, who has witnessed many changes in his hometown of Ironton, New Jersey, over the past few years. Most recently, scandals have erupted within the city government, with the stench of its corruption embedded deep enough to rival the dank, stagnant stench arising from the old bog on the outskirts of town.

Detective Nagler had witnessed his fair share of gruesome scenes throughout his career, but the explosion that ripped through the once-thriving town left him stunned. As Warren Street erupted into chaos, debris rained down from the sky like a twisted confetti parade, with splintered wood, shattered glass, and twisted metal flying in all directions. Amidst the chaos, an antique clock, its glass face cracked and hands frozen in time, stood as a haunting reminder of the moment that changed everything.

This crime is hard to solve because the clues are confusing and scarce. The investigation takes the detectives to an old drug case involving a teenager and a bunch of companies with a mysterious goal that doesn’t seem to care about the growing number of dead bodies.

Find out what happens next. Get a copy of “Dragony Rising: A Frank Nagler Mystery” on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. More so, visit the ReadersMagnet exhibit at booth #225 at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books to experience the wonder of the book display.
