Hi, I’m Libby Hellmann, bestselling crime thriller author. I’ve written 13 novels, but Set The Night On Fire is one of my favorites because it takes place during a crazy political time (sound familiar?) —  the 1968 Democratic convention. Here’s what it’s about:

Someone is trying to kill Lila Hilliard. She doesn’t know who and she doesn’t know why, but in her increasingly desperate search to find out, she discovers her parents were not the people she thought they were. 

The story flashes back to 1968 where six young people meet at the Democratic convention and decide to live together in that oh-so-casual way back then: “Sure.” “Why not?” “Far out!” Readers learn who her parents really were and why the secret was kept from her.

Part thriller, part historical novel, and part love story, Set the Night on Fire paints an unforgettable portrait of Chicago during a turbulent time: the riots at the Democratic Convention… the struggle for power between the Black Panthers and SDS… and a group of young idealists who tried to change the world.
