Published in 1988, The Eight was Nevilles first novel; I describe her as the intellectuals Dan Brown. Her books contain all the cryptic puzzles and historical information of Browns, but without the inane dialogue and one-dimensional characters. And now -- finally! -- shes come out with a sequel to The Eight. Buy both The Eight and her brand-new novel, The Fire, when she stops in Boulder today at the Boulder Book Store (1107 Pearl Street, Boulder, 303-447-2074, www.boulderbookstore.com) or tomorrow at the Tattered Cover (2526 East Colfax Avenue, 303-322-7727, www.tatteredcover.com).
