With the publication of The Man In The Canal, Brunswick author Paul Betit completes a trilogy he set out to write more than a decade ago. He'll share the story of his book and its writing Saturday, February 8 at 1 p.m. in the Morrell Meeting Room at the Curtis Memorial Library, 23 Pleasant Street, Brunswick.
“I’ve been working on this book for quite some time,” said Betit, who recently wrapped up a 38-year career as a newspaperman in Maine. “It was quite a challenge, especially since I didn’t take a step in Sweden until I had written more than half of the book.”
“The Man In The Canal has all the great qualities of the first two books in this series,” said publisher Nancy Randolph, owner of Topsham-based Just Write Books. “Great characters, super plot, fast-paced action and much more. Through the richness of his language and his fine sense of observation, Betit enables us to really experience another environment. Traveling with him, you are sure to enjoy the scenery as well as the action.”
Betit, who grew up in Augusta, Maine, lives in Brunswick, Maine, with his wife, Debbie. They have two sons.
Soft-cover editions of all of three of the books in the John Murphy series can be ordered through local bookstores or on-line at jstwrite.com, Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com.
Ebooks of Phu Bai, Kagnew Station and The Man In The Canal also are available at amazon.com.
