Mainely Angst

Saturday, July 16 at 1:00pm on the library lawn

Join us on the library lawn to hear Maine author Matt Cost discuss the latest book in his Goff Langdon Mainely Mystery Trilogy.

Mainely Angst: In Cost’s fourth installment in the Mainely Mystery series, Mainely Angst, Langdon is hired to find a kidnapped boy. A man with a Salvador Dali mask threatens to execute the lad if the governor of Maine doesn’t ease up business restrictions and mask requirements due to the pandemic.

Goff Langdon leads an ideal life in Brunswick, Maine. Happily married, good friends, mystery bookstore owner, PI, and a dog—the way life should be. And then angst erupts disturbing everything and threatening not only the way of life, but life itself.

“Somebody stole my wife,” the man said. Did Annika Morin leave her husband or was she taken?

“I was sexually harass’ by my boss and then fire’ when I refused his advances.” Raven’s dark eyes flashed a promise of anger and vengeance.

Local brew pub owner Rick Strong is accused of sexual harassment, which seems likely, but is he guilty of much more? Or is it entirely fabricated?

“Where is my boy?” Jill asked, her words anguished.

And then the boy is abducted, and the kidnapper attempts to hold the entire state hostage. If the governor refuses their demands, the kidnapper promises to execute the child on Halloween.
