Fogland Point

Fogland Point is first-class fiction, a multilayered and original mystery underscored by fine writing, fully developed characters, and a wonderful sense of place. Doug Burgess writes with humor and poignancy while creating an eerie, atmospheric tale that is sure to please.”

Michael Koryta, New York Times bestselling author of How It Happened

“Drop everything and read this book. A terrific story in a terrifically honest voice—it’s intelligent and original, hilarious and heartbreaking, evocative and charming. A beautifully written tale of murder, dementia, family, love—and surprises! Standing ovation.”

Hank Phillippi Ryan, Bestselling, award-winning author

“Fogland Point is a unique, surprising, moving, occasionally hilarious, and entirely marvelous book about the complicated mysteries that lie at the heart of all families—although the Hazard family is definitely more complicated and mysterious and interesting than most.”

Nick Petrie, author of Light It Up, the latest of the award-winning Peter Ash thrillers

“If only we all had friends like the Laughing Sarahs: fiercely loyal, mordantly funny and murderously clever. Doug Burgess’ Fogland Point brings a wildly original amateur detective to the table of the most secretive small town in New England. I can’t wait to go back.”

Francine Mathews, author of the Merry Folger Nantucket Mysteries and several spy thrillers

“Elegant prose, a veritable chinese box of puzzles, and authentic, well-rounded characters make this a standout.”

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Readers…will find Burgess’ debut strongly evocative of a distinctive place, presented in a compelling first-person voice that manages to be beyond illusions but never cynical.”
