Deer Lake: A Novel

Officially, Felix Prior died in a boating accident.

But Prior’s daughter, Tara, is convinced he was murdered, and hires Tad Pike, a Deer Lake local, to help her prove it.

Then there’re those who think something in the lake killed Felix—something big and hungry and seldom seen . . .

Deer Lake is a hilarious crime thriller along the lines of Jaws—if Jaws had been authored by Carl Hiaasen or Janet Evanovich and set in Quebec cottage country.


It includes a wannabe documentarian, a pair of semi-literate gun nuts, a billionaire who built his fortune on rubber reproductions of certain female body parts, a marble-mouthed reptile wrangler, a former lion-tamer turned TV star, and—oh, did I mention the possible lake monster?
