"This Compelling New Hampshire Murder Mystery is an Enigmatic, Visceral Read."

SAN ANTONIO, TX, USA, February 17, 2022 / -- From PHiR Publishing

PHiR is VERY excited for the release of THE BARN: A Novella Mystery co-written by John Casey and Doug Campbell. Casey and Campbell grew up together in Keene, NH, and have remained close friends. Says Casey: "When Doug first came to me with it, I was intrigued. It was a new genre for me, but I'm always up for trying something new. So, we collaborated for several months, and this is the result. I think anyone who is passionate about mysteries will truly enjoy THE BARN." It is Casey and Campbell's first collaboration and a more-than-worthy addition to John Casey's growing list of titles.

SYNOPSIS: At the behest of his brother John, Keith Conway returns home to New England after a long absence. Their mother's health is in decline, and she may not have much time left. A cryptic message from her leaves them wondering if their grandfather's death decades ago was in fact a freak accident, or if there may have been foul play. Though John puts up with Keith's attempt to discover the truth, he ultimately sours on it. Keith presses on, all the time unsure if he's helping or hurting his family. He wonders as well if the truth is as sinister as it seems, and whether it might be best for all involved to leave it buried...
