Reunion at Red Paint Bay
by George Harrar
Review: Simon Howe is the owner-editor of the Register, the only newspaper in the town of Red Paint, Maine. Not much makes news in town — unusual sightings, a high school reunion notice, and the like. Indeed, Simon is considering adding a tagline to the paper: "Nothing happens — and we report it." But business is good enough to justify Simon hiring an employee for the press room. Though David Rigero has a criminal record and has done time for sexual assault, he scored the highest on the application test. And besides, Simon thought he was doing the right thing by giving the man a second chance. But Simon's wife Amy, a psychiatric therapist, sees things differently. To her, a rapist is always a rapist and no amount of time can change that. But Simon begins to have second thoughts himself when someone scrawls "RAPIST" on the paper's front door and he begins to receiving anonymous — and threatening — postcards in the mail, in Reunion at Red Paint Bay, a novel of suspense by George Harrar.
