‘The Weight of Living’ entered in 2017 Best Books Award contest

“The Weight of Living,” the third Frank Nagler Mystery is an entry into the 14th Annual Best Books Award contest.

The winners are picked by a judging panel and will be announced in mid-November.

This is how “Weight is described on the contest page:

“What does it mean that a young girl is found standing in a Dumpster outside an Ironton, N.J. grocery store on a cold March night? That’s the puzzle facing Detective Frank Nagler. Nothing is what it seems. Why are he and his friends being followed by a black SUV?  Why does the search involve Sister Katherine, a nun from Nagler’s youth?  And why does everyone seems to be lying about everything?
That’s the challenge facing Nagler in the third Frank Nagler Mystery, “The Weight of Living.”
It is an intense, involving page-turner, with scenes that will shock the reader and grab at the emotional bond they will have with the characters, all leading to a surprising, yet hopeful end.”
