Maple Sugar Murders

Sap isn't the only thing running in Tylerton, New Hampshire. Residents run scared when a man is found strangled in his sugar orchard. Crusty Amos Reed and his seductive daughter Janice ask Hugh Quint to help look for the killer. Suspects pop out of the woodwork for the ex-Boston Police Department detective turned private investigator. Benj Carver's blood boils in a long-standing land feud with Reed. Both of them despise the developer from New Jersey. Tylerton is a peaceful country village everyone dreams about--sweet, 100% pure, and DEADLY.

Steve Sherman himself says of Maple Sugar Murders: "For my nonfiction book Basic Yankee; Conversations with New Englanders, I talked with lobster fishermen, ice cutters, dowsers, auctioneers, midwives, and--maple sugarers. Reality feeds unreality."
