Join us for some light refreshments and a fascinating fireside presentation by local author Arno B. Zimmer. He'll be discussing his fifth book, The Severed Finger, a mystery novel set right off the coast of the Thimble Islands! Read the full synopsis below:

IN A SMALL TOWN ALONG THE CONNECTICUT COAST, A MAN GOES MISSING AND A FINGER WASHES ASHORE ON A NEARBY ISLAND.

In The Severed Finger – A Thimble Islands Mystery, a mild-mannered businessman with a fixation on Edgar Allan Poe, Capt. Kidd and buried treasure, vanishes on a visit to the quarry co-owned with his shady partner. He is last seen with a mysterious blonde who herself disappears without a trace. When an amateur sleuth engaged by the missing man’s family teams up with a retired lawyer, this investigative odd couple helps the state police uncover an elaborate scam that leads to a ritualistic murder, a suicide and the mutilation of an innocent man.
