    1.

But, the characterizations are what really won me over. I liked Joe and Paulie, although I would like to see Joe [...]

In his review of the newpaper's archives he discovers that his late mentor investigate the disa [...]


    6. This is the author's first crime fiction book. Brenda mailed me an ARC of this book. I found this Maine newspaper reporter novel to be very engrossing. I look forward to the second book COVER STORY when it is published.
