The Pier by Bill Noel
Bill Noel's debut novel, Folly, introduced Chris Landrum and his adventures on the small, quirky island of Folly Beach, South Carolina, where he spent an extended vacation, purchased a retirement home, and solved a murder. In this second installment of A Folly Beach Mystery series, murder and mayhem continue to interfere with Chris's laid-back retirement plans.
Praise for The Pier
"Louisville author Bill Noel, himself a seasoned photographer, has followed his debut offering, Folly, with another engaging Folly Beach Mystery. Armed with a gift for creating ultra-quirky yet believable characters, Noel shows how a healthy dose of cynicism-even among untrained, nonprofessional types-can lead to solving a murder mystery that the police had initially decided wasn't even a homicide."
"Spend a little time at the Lost Dog Café ("Coffee and a bite") with Landrum and his troupe of amateur sleuths, and I bet you'll be glad you made the trip."
