“This compelling New Hampshire murder mystery is an enigmatic and visceral read.”
PHiR is VERY excited for the release of THE BARN: A Novella Mystery co-written by John Casey and Doug Campbell. Casey and Campbell grew up together in Keene, NH, and have remained close friends. Casey says, “When Doug first spoke to me, I was intrigued. It was a new genre for me, but I’m always up for trying something new. So we worked together for several months, and here’s the result. I think anyone with a passion for mysteries will really enjoy THE GRANGE.” This is Casey and Campbell’s first collaboration and a more than worthy addition to John Casey’s growing list of titles.
SYNOPSIS: At the request of his brother John, Keith Conway returns home to New England after a long absence. Their mother’s health is declining and she may not have much time left. A cryptic message from her leads them to wonder if their grandfather’s death decades ago was in fact a freak accident, or if there may have been foul play. Although John supports Keith’s attempt to find out the truth, he ends up craving it. Keith insists, not knowing if he is helping or hurting his family. He also wonders if the truth is as grim as it sounds, and if it might be better for everyone involved to leave it buried…
