Having read all three books I would say that Mapping Murder is the best yet, for it not only extends beyond the borders of small-town Ryland to other places in Maine, but it involves multiple thefts and several suspects, so you are kept guessing to the end . . . While it is helpful to have read the previous books in the series, Mr. Andrews provides enough backstory so that it is not completely necessary to be familiar with them. I especially like them for the fact that they take place in a small town well outside of any metropolitan area. They make for a great read, and as a bonus, they are insightful as to how historical societies are run and the problems small museums face.

––The Miramichi Reader

“A nice suspenseful combination of past and present with more than a few plot twists and surprising revelations.”

––Kennebec Journal

Just in time for the summer reading season, fans of the popular Julie Williamson Mystery Series have a new historical whodunit to devour with the launch of Mapping Murder by Maine author William D. Andrews.

 The new book, published in June by Islandport Press, finds Ryland Historical Society director Julie Williamson at an annual convention where she meets a troubled colleague. Precious artifacts are missing and landing in the hands of unscrupulous dealers. When the colleague winds up dead, and the mysterious thefts continue, Williamson can’t resist setting a trap. Andrews brings back a beloved cast of characters to help his amateur detective solve one of her toughest cases yet.   

Mystery fans are invited to join Andrews for the official launch of his book on Saturday, July 15, from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. at Bethel Historical Society, 10 Broad Street, Bethel on the Mason House grounds. The event is part of MollyOckett Day—a homecoming festival named for Native American woman who traveled all over western Maine in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Enjoy the festival and then visit with the author, learn more about the book, and try some locally made treats. Books will be available for sale and signing. The launch is free and open to the public.

Andrews turned to writing mystery novels after a long career in higher education as both a faculty member and administrator. He has served as a trustee of the Bethel Historical Society and director of the Mahoosuc Land Trust. He resides in Newry, Maine with his wife Debby. The couple also spend their time in Portland, where they keep a small boat for cruising the Casco Bay. Mapping Murder is the third installment of the Julie Williamson Murder Mystery series. Andrews’s other books include Stealing History––which was called “a classic whodunit” by the Lewiston Sun Journal––and Breaking Ground.
