Brunswick writer Paul Betit will speak on Tuesday, March 17, 6:30-7:30 p.m., at Prince Memorial Library, 266 Main St., in Cumberland Center. Refreshments will be served.

Author of a mystery-suspense novel series featuring U.S. Army CID investigator John Murphy, Betit will share back-stories regarding his crime novels and discuss his writing regimen and the creative process. His novels, set in the ‘60s and ‘70s, include Phu Bai, Kagnew Station, and The Man In The Canal, which was published last year.

“In this well-crafted and suspenseful mystery, (Betit) taps into his 1960s military service in Vietnam as background for his tale,” Maine Sunday Telegram review Lloyd Ferris wrote last spring. “This is Betit’s third novel set overseas during the Vietnam War. It’s the best of the trilogy.”

In Betit’s most recent novel, Murphy goes undercover in Sweden during the summer of 1971 to find a murderer believed to hiding among the group of American military deserters who took refuge in the Scandinavian country during the Vietnam War.
