Chuck Bowie graduated from the University of New Brunswick in Canada with a Bachelor Degree in Science. He still lives in on the East Coast of Canada, an hour North and East of Maine. Growing up as an air force brat, his writing is influenced by the study of human nature and how people behave, habits he picked up as his family moved nineteen times in his first twenty one years. Chuck loves food, wine, music and travel and all play a role in his work.

His writing will often draw upon elements of these experiences to round out his characters and plotlines. Chuck is involved in the world of music, supporting local musicians, occasionally playing with them and always celebrating their successes.

He’s just finished the fourth novel in the suspense-thriller series: Donovan: Thief For Hire. It’s entitled The Body On The Underwater Road, and the book drops in 2018. It follows Three Wrongs, AMACAT and Steal It All. The editing for Book 4 begins shortly.

In the meantime, Chuck’s begun a new ‘Cozy Mystery’ series, set in the fictional town of Newcastle, in Canada. Stay tuned!

Chuck is married, with two adult musician sons, Jon and Matt. He and his wife Lois live in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.

The Body on the Underwater Road (Donovan: Thief for Hire)

Tricia Parker was a woman with a past; one that led to a marriage break-up and the complete severance of ties to her very wealthy ex-husband and daughter. Fifteen years later, Tricia suddenly appears, wanting to talk to her daughter, and a day later, Tricia’s body washes up on an underwater road. The prime suspects are her daughter and ex-husband, who are summering in St. Andrews.

Friends who see their predicament contact Donovan and Beth, who are no strangers to murder, and who have certain skills in solving crimes.

As Donovan begins piecing together the elements of the case, he happens upon an old acquaintance, a particularly nasty art thief who shouldn’t even be in that part of the country.

The Body On The Underwater Road is a story set in two countries. It’s about estranged families, old money, and secrets. And murder. [Website]
