    SEARSPORT -止痛药书店, 在Searsport, kicks off its 2024 Summer Wine and Sign Series on Saturday, 5月18日, 下午五点半.m., with Camden author Peter Nichols who will read from and discuss his brand new thriller, 花岗岩港, about a small town in coastal Maine shaken to its core when a serial killer starts targeting local teen boys.  

    关于 花岗岩港口:

    In scenic Granite Harbor on the coast of Maine, life has continued on—quiet and serene—for decades. That is until a local teenager's body is found brutally murdered and hung in The Settlement, 这个小镇的历史考古遗址. 展示尸体的方式, 挂在手工木结构上, and the singular gruesome clue left inside the corpse, signal that this might not have been the killer's first victim.

    Alex Brangwen is adjusting to life as a single father and the town's sole detective after a failed career as a novelist. 这是他的第一起谋杀案, 作为一名家长和警探, Alex knows the people of Granite Harbor are looking to him to catch the killer and temper the fear that has descended over the town. 但他的侦探技能还很初级, and he worries that they are more novelist's intuition than investigator's expertise.

    伊莎贝尔, a single mother attempting to support her family while healing from her own demons, finds herself in the middle of the case when she begins working at The Settlement. Her son Ethan, and Alex’s daughter Sophie, were best friends with the victim. 当另一个青少年被发现被谋杀时, 尸体留下了同样可怕的细节, both parents are terrified that their child may be next.

    As Alex and 伊莎贝尔 race to find the killer in their midst, 小镇的秘密, 过去和现在, 开始冒泡到表面, threatening to unravel the tight-knit community. At once a page-turning thriller and a captivating portrait of the social fabric of a small town, Granite Harbor evokes the place and atmosphere of a Jane Harper mystery with a terrifying villain reminiscent of Thomas Harris's Buffalo Bill.
