Book Review: Tapply's Bitch Creek

September 4, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

Rebecca Rule reviews William Tapply’s most recent book Bitch Creek (The Lyons Press, September 2004, 292 pages). “Here’s where I’ll tread carefully, so’s not to spook the brookies or give away the plot. But between the spot-on Maine Yankee dialogue, the unusual love story (Kate is married to a dying man), the deep woods settings (somewhere between Portland, Maine, and the N.H. border), the attractive, likable characters (especially Stoney’s dog) – this is a topnotch mystery novel.” In the Nashua, New Hampshire Telegraph.
