Wednesday, December 13 at 7:00 p.m. at Ffyler Place. LOCAL AUTHOR MARK DRESSLER will discuss his book, DEAD AND GONE. Mysteries abound in this detective novel. Disparate threads somehow lead to one conclusion. Hartford detective Dan Shields is in the middle of it all when he comes face to face with the gun-toting thug who’d nearly killed him six years ago. With vengeance in his blood, the detective attempts to bring down his nemesis, resorting to tactics that almost cost him his badge and the investigation. The book will be available for purchase and signing.
