BOOK LAUNCH: Among the Shadows by Bruce Robert Coffin

"Among the Shadows" by Bruce Robert Coffin

Join me in congratulating Bruce Coffin on the launch of his first crime novel!

I met Bruce at a Sisters in Crime event and was struck one fact: He's a cop who can write. We all assume cops are filled with great stories, but when you find one who can spin yarn and write about it in a compelling fashion, we have a winner! Buy his book from Amazon right now!!! What are you waiting for?

Haven't clicked through yet? Well, he's already getting great buzz:

“Compulsively readable, Among the Shadows is that rare cop novel that’s chock full of blood-and-guts detail while taking the reader along on a ride of a lifetime.  Detective John Byron is a great character, and the reader will be eager for the next installment of his story.” – Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Assassins

Bruce's bio:

Bruce Robert Coffin is a former detective sergeant with more than twenty-seven years in law enforcement. At the time of his retirement, from the Portland, Maine police department, he supervised all homicide and violent crime investigations for Maine’s largest city. Following the terror attacks of September 11th, Bruce spent four years working counter-terrorism with the FBI, earning the Director’s Award, the highest honor a non-agent can receive.

He is the author of the John Byron Mystery Series. The debut novel in the series, Among The Shadows, will be released on September 13.

His short fiction appears in several anthologies, including 2016 Best American Mystery Stories.

He lives and writes in Maine.
