Author Joe Perrone Jr is pleased to announce the release of Broken Promises: A Matt Davis Mystery, published by Escarpment Press, and available in regular and large print paperback, as well as in various Ebook formats including those for Kindle, Nook and iPad (among others). This is the fourth book in the series, which includes As the Twig is Bent, Opening Day (an Indie B.R.A.G. medallion recipient), and Twice Bitten.
The book is set in the Upstate New York fishing village of Roscoe, where Chief of Police Matt Davis is faced with a most unusual crime: Maggie McFarland, an 86-year old, locally-renowned fly tyer has been found dead on the grounds of an old, burned-out hotel. Maggie's death itself is not such a huge surprise to the community, but the manner of her demise most certainly is. She's been shot through the heart at close range - and the bullet appears to date back to World War II. With no other clues, no apparent motive, and no ready suspects, it's up to Matt to solve the most baffling crime of his career.
Underlying the main story is a sub-plot involving a bitter battle between an energy conglomerate attempting to bring a wind turbine farm to Roscoe and those vehemently opposed to the project.
Joe is a resident of Hendersonville.
