John Lindsey Hickman's first book series is set in fictitious Castaway County, Maine, and centers on the local sheriff's office. A former Boston Police Detective, Wendell "Dell" Hinton is now Sheriff of this large but sparsely populated county in the north woods of Maine. Being a lovely, rural area, Dell has no sophisticated crime lab at his immediate disposal so he solves crimes the old fashioned way: using common sense and his investigative skills.
Throughout the series, Dell Hinton also provides insight on lake life in the woods of Maine. His home is on the shores of a lake that has a rich history and some interesting characters.
The series has already been honored with back-to-back BRAG Medallions from IndieBRAG, a book reader's appreciation group for books published independently.
