NORWICH – A local author who recently published his second work of fiction will be signing books from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at First Edition Bookstore in Norwich.
“The Case of the Missing Dentures” by Owen Magruder is the second book centered around the adventures of a retired Scottish policeman, John Braemhor. Magruder, whose real name is William Edmonston explained that he always liked mystery novels, but it wasn’t until he retired from teaching neuroscience and psychology at Colgate University that he had time to begin writing fiction.
Magruder published his first work of fiction, “The Strange Case of Mr. Nobody,” in 2000, introducing the character of John Braemhor, the former police officer who is always eager to solve a mystery. In the second book, Braemhor finds his mystery in an unlikely location, behind an old medicine cabinet. When Braemhor and his son begin renovating a downstairs bathroom, they find a set of relatively new dentures, and set off to discover who left them and how they wound up behind the medicine chest.
