 Our Description

T.M. Doran

"Dennis Cole and his three best buddies from childhood gather for a weekend reunion. On the first night, one of the men is murdered-or is he?
A professor of engineering by day and a writer of detective fiction by night, Cole and the other survivors try to piece together the mysterious fate of their friend. The suspenseful story moves back and forth between the unfolding reunion gone bad and childhood events that involved these friends who grew up on the same street.

Looming largest in the memory of Dennis is the striking character of his widowed father, T. A.-Marine veteran of the Korean War and blue-collar philosopher. In his interactions with T. A, Dennis tries to make sense out of life; but instead of simple answers, puzzling questions of evil, human freedom, and the possibility of transformation are all T. A. seems to provide. These questions follow Dennis through young adulthood and beyond; they finally catch up to him in the surprising and thrilling climax of this novel.

A murder mystery and a coming of age story, both with many twists and turns, Terrapin is about man's potential for doing either good or evil, his tendency to do the latter, and his response to the consequences of his actions.

T. M. Doran is a writer, educator, and consultant. An adjunct professor of civil engineering at Lawrence Technological University, he is the author of the popular novel Toward the Gleam.

""Terrapin is a heady yet gripping mystery that explores how one's choices can lead to either growth or suffering and how there is always possibility for redemption. An excellent, spine-tingling read!""
-Ann Margaret Lewis, President of the Catholic Writers Guild, and Author of Murder in the Vatican: The Church Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes "
