Internationally published author Ted Miller Brogden has released a sequel to his 2010 novel “Jigsaw,” and it is, the author said, already getting rave review.
Set in eastern North Carolina, Jigsaw Part II details the further exploits of Capt. Cape Thomas.
Having suffered a gunshot wound to the head, Cape was rendered semi-comatose for over three years. On the eve of his discharge from the hospital after two more years of physical therapy, a night nurse — either a figment of his imagination or his worst living nightmare—attacks him. Convinced by hospital staff that the attack was the trick of a healing mind, Cape bids farewell to the facility, his home for the past five years.
Once reunited with his family in the Fisher mansion, odd things continue to happen. Nooses and miniature coffins appear out of nowhere, which leads Cape to believe his old nemeses Walter Cronus Kress and William Johnston are responsible. These new terrors are real but the intent is murky.
Veiled threats turn into a string of murders. Cape searches in vain for answers and solace throughout his familiar haunts in eastern North Carolina, but every revelation leads to more mystery.
Brogden is an instrument-rated pilot, certified diver, internationally published author, and practicing raconteur. He lives in Goldsboro, spends most of his time in eastern North Carolina and points South, but his favorite city is New York.
When asked his simplified view of life, Brogden says, “I’ve always tried to face life like an oyster does — when given grit, give back a pearl.”
He was born in Mt. Olive and raised in Faison. He is a REALTOR® and co-owner, with Michael Thornton, of Terrain Marketing Brokers, a member of the Sampson-Duplin Council and Cape Fear Regional REALTOR® Association.
