Deep Water: Murder, Scandal, and Intrigue in a New England Town

Meet the author Ken Sheldon!

In the waning days of World War I, William K. Dean was brutally murdered, his body hog-tied and dumped in a rainwater cistern on his farm in the quiet town of Jaffrey, New Hampshire. Suspicion quickly fell on Dean's wife, an invalid in the early stages of dementia. Her friends, outraged at the accusations, pointed instead to a former tenant of Dean’s, whom many suspected of being a German spy. Others believed that Dean's best friend, a politically powerful banker and judge, was involved.

Join us for an evening with the author as he talks about his latest book, sure to make for a perfect October evening!

Please email us at: wiltonlbrarynh@gmail.com or call
