The Bryant Falls Mysteries
A grieving widower with a mystery to solve.
Martin Spencer is a man with sandy blond hair, about thirty years old. He may have been fairly handsome and charismatic once; his mouth shows the traces of laugh lines, now faded with time. Now, though, he is chronically gloomy and withdrawn. He lives in a small stone cottage about half a mile outside of Bryant Falls, which has stood vacant for several decades (though the owner did arrange for basic maintenance on the place). He just moved in after leaving Brattleboro, Vermont, and got a job with the Town Crier, Bryant Falls’ local newspaper. He’s only just arrived in town and started work, but he hasn’t really gotten to know anyone yet.
