Murder on the Marginal Way:
A Michael Bishop Mystery
(Michael Bishop Mysteries Book 4)
Veteran English teacher/amateur sleuth Michael Bishop visits Ogunquit, Maine for a week’s vacation before the start of another school year. His hopes for relaxation are quickly dashed when he discovers the body of Amy Walsh, a former student, on the rocks below the scenic Marginal Way.
After the authorities find his hat at the scene, he becomes a suspect in her death. Fearing the negative effects of a murder investigation on tourism, some influential community leaders pressure the police to dismiss the case as an accident. Bishop, however, isn’t convinced. As he begins to question her friends, business associates, and others, he discovers that behind the façade of this idyllic town is a trio of powerbrokers who seemingly will stop at nothing to maintain their wealth and power.
Battling lapses in memory, and troubled by reports of chaos at school, Bishop again confronts both the good and evil in human nature in his relentless pursuit of the truth.
