BY JOHN BREWER
BLACK POINT
Set in the upscale summer resort area of Prout's Neck, Maine, this debut thriller follows driven young sociopath Burchard Look, who yearns to break free of his gently ineffectual parents and share in the sybaritic life of aging Dory Harmon (the ruling community doyenne with a mysterious link to painter Winslow Homer), Winny Wentworth (a wealthy and unscrupulous art dealer), his luscious daughter, and privileged young son. A brilliant saga of duplicity, brutality, and revenge.

BY MICHAEL LINDGREN
