are mysteries in the classic tradition, featuring an amateur detective — an outsider drawn into the drama of the small mountain communities he’s visiting.

Gordon is a former college basketball player and stockbroker. After making a modest fortune in the bull market of the 1980s, he has the freedom to pursue his love of fly-fishing and the outdoors. But his fishing plans tend to get sidetracked by a murder or other outrage.

Each Quill Gordon novel is set in a different locale, rich in atmosphere, with different characters and issues. The common thread is Gordon’s steady hand as he helps solve the crime that has disrupted the community.
