Old Lyme Mystery Writer David Handler Makes an Appearance

Congregational Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek, 55 East Kings Highway, Chester, CT

Mystery novelist David Handler, who regularly turns the Connecticut shoreline into a site of intrigue, will read from his newly released novel, "The Snow White Christmas Cookie," in a free program (with bagels and coffee) at 9:30 a.m., Sunday, Oct. 28, at Congregation Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek, in Chester.

Handler, formerly a NYC Broadway, TV and film critic, moved to Old Lyme in 1996 and began the creation of a mystery series in novel form with local geographic interest, featuring the mismatched romantic crime-fighting duo of New York City film critic Mitch Berger and Connecticut State Resident trooper Desiree Mitry. He sets his novels in the town of Dorset, a stand-in for Old Lyme -- in this one, murder is committed during a 40-inch snowfall. This book is the ninth in the series; Handler is also the author of several other books.

Publishers Weekly says, "Handler's blend of suspenseful plot, skillful telling, and occasional splashes of comic relief add up to a heady cocktail of prime crime."

Handler's appearance is part of the synagogue's long-running "Books & Bagels" series. The Snow White Christmas Cookie will be available for sale and refreshments will be served. For further information, please contact the synagogue at 860-526-8920 or join us Sunday morning at 55 East Kings Highway, Chester CT.
