The Man from Primrose Lane

Hunting serial killers can be an expensive hobby. I've visited New Hampshire four times this past year and the reason I was able to do that is from the advance I received for this book, which will finally be released across the U.S. and Canada February 28. This is my first novel, and if it is successful I can devote more time to these unsolved mysteries.

The Man from Primrose Lane tells the story of a true crime writer who goes looking for the man that killed a strange hermit who always wore mittens, even in the middle of the summer. It's a story about obsession, about the search for answers. It's a love story. It's about crime but it's also about science. And science fiction. Read more about it here.

If this story sounds like your kind of thing, you can find the novel at your local bookstore or online for your Kindle, Nook, or e-reader. Hope you like it.

  9. Are you going to be at the Cincinnati location listed on this site: http://www.josephbeth.com/Landing.aspx? Or is there one on Riverside (stated on your website) that isn't listed on the Joseph-Beth website? I may stop by and say Hello.

  11. I just got mine in today! I will be reading it this evening.. Nothing beats a good book!

    Question : I dont live close to you, so, I am going to give my copy to my mother, as she loves books like these, & I was wondering how much you would charge me to get an autographed first edition to put with my collection of autographs/first editions ??

    It would have to be sent USPS Priority, & with some bubble wrap, so thats around $8-10 bucks there, then the cost of the book, the time out of your schedule to send it, & the autograph if your willing to do it.. I would gladly use paypal directly to you if needed or whatever..

    Thanks in advance,
    Emmett

    1. Have you ever considred the idea that Maura might have been fired from her post at UM and that she was actually escorted out for those reasons? that would explain the presense of the person who escorted her out and her being so emotionally upset. What is the name of the person who escorted her that night??? Certainly Maura must have confided something to this person or this person was following orders.
