Code and Ethics

On January 14th, the library hosted a "Book Talk and Signing" with Martin Devine. Marty is a local author who has just had his first book, Code and Ethics", published.

"Code and Ethics" is about the head of Manchester, New Hampshire´s homicide detectives who is called to the scene of a brutal murder. There, he finds more than the victim.

He finds that violent crime has become routine in nature to him--just by looking at a crime scene he can describe what had happened. He finds that he has let slip his ideal, to defeat violent crime, that led him into police work as a young man. And most of all he finds that he has failed his code!

Self-anger propels him down an untrodden path. He encounters hidden agendas, violence and murder as he threads his way through the fabric of our social and political environment. The path leads him into a world where a persons´ code determines their ethics.

You can check out a copy of "Code and Ethics" at the library.

You can hear more of Martin's works during the upcoming Writers Group "Open Mic Night" on February 18th at the library. This program starts at 7:00 PM and registration is required.
