Cassie O'Malley writes stories
about "everything out of the ordinary" for a barely reputable magazine.
When the deer in Doah Township begin dying in large numbers, under
mysterious circumstances, Cassie is on the story. But when she discovers
a dead body among the deer, she is thrust into the middle of a murder
investigation. Before the murder can be solved, Cassie must sort fact
from fiction as she is confronted with questions of local politics,
marital infidelity, Pine Barrens folklore, Siamese triplets, sea
monsters, pterodactyls, plesiosaurs and the elusive Jersey Devil,
leaving Cassie finally to grapple with the question, Who Is Killing Doah's Deer?
Available in paperback.
"It is rare for a male writer to create complex, believable female
characters, though Mr. Markowitz makes it seem easy. I loved this story
and the characters were so real--I felt like I knew them in real life" - Saadia A.
"everything a good mystery should be" - Colleen B.
