About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Murders in Stony Point has four novellas, related by geography and minor characters. You'll find Hoabie, the chief of police; Ox, his deputy; Roger Curry, the lawyer and his wife, Flo; Pastor Waltz; Sally the librarian and several others in several stories. The town of Stony Point, on the southeastern coast of Connecticut, will have familiar landmarks: the busy shoreline, wooded countryside, old homes and quiet neighborhoods, the Davis Restaurant, Harborview Hotel, and other nostalgic places.

In Bayberry Mist, a beautiful off-shore island is owned by a woman with Alzhiemer's disease. Her three adult children resent their stepfather who has plans to sell the property which they feel is their legacy. They half-jokingly plan his murder, and when he is found dead, all three wonder which one of them carried out their plan. When a second death occurs, the last two wonder which one will be left to claim it all?

In Celebrity, a country western singer returns to his home town to give a concert. That night someone waits for his return and he and his chauffeur are both murdered. The local police are overwhelmed with the many connections to the star that must be investigated, sparing little time or attention to the chauffeur who was just "in the wrong place at the wrong time."

In Bitterweed, Belle, a sociopathic widow, lives for two things: her adoration for her daughter and her resentment of her wealthy widowed sister-in-law. When Belle discovers a rare poison, she creates a string of deaths which she hopes will secure her daughter's future. But some things are beyond her control.

In Targets, a lonely teenage orphan's only joy is a gun left to him by his soldier father. Living in the woods, he takes to sniping at cars and lights on the highway. Then someone steals his gun to commit a murder. He is afraid of being framed, and a further series of betrayals leaves him with no hope for the future.
