The Devil’s Jury


A group of locals meet so often to drink and shmooze at a bar called Bar None that they adopt a name–The Devil’s Jury.

Just as we get to know the members and enjoy their humor, a number of events occur nearby.  First a construction worker is assassinated and then a divorce attorney is killed in a hit-and-run.  These deaths seem strangely related to the group.  Detective Dahlia “Dizzy” Gillespie investigates the first and ADA Rob Latrobe looks into the other death.

When one of the “jurors” disappears and another is murdered, the Devil’s Jury becomes a promising source for a solution or a suspect—or both.  To solve the seaside homicides, Detective Gillespie will have to ascend the most isolated peak in the White Mountains.

Readers have enjoyed the repartee and humor in the novel.  You can find some of their comments on Goodreads and Amazon.
