They thought he’d been shot by a deer hunter, and his body was butchered just like you’d cut up a deer in the woods, but that grisly discovery was only the beginning in a complex web of intrigue that will keep you reading well into the night.
Maureen Milliken, the editor of the Morning Sentinel newspaper, has created a compelling read in her new novel, No News Is Bad News. Like her first novel, Maureen’s central character is Bernie O’Dea, the editor of a weekly newspaper. She’s surrounded by a lively cast of characters, from a wife beater to a troubled police chief. But when her newly-unemployed brother shows up, the plot gets a lot more complicated.
