Innovative Public Relations President David Dean Menzies Releases Debut Novel 'OBX'
by BWW News Desk - Jul 23, 2014

With a hurricane bearing down on the North Carolina seaside vacation mecca known as the Outer Banks, State Bureau of Investigation agent and troubled mother-of-three Michael Francis battles personal demons and real-life danger to solve a brutal politically charged murder case. 'OBX' is the debut novel by North Carolina author David Dean Menzies featuring Agent Michael Francis and her struggles to piece together a puzzle involving a serial killer, an attempt on her life, a break-in and shooting at her home, drug ring and cover-up by local law enforcement and government officials. In the midst of unexpected and confusing romantic overtures from a suspect in the case, Michael is forced to deal with human threats more dangerous than mother nature herself in a climactic ending with an unexpected twist. The roughly 78,000-word novel is an action-packed murder mystery in the spirit of Patricia Cornwell and James Patterson with a touch of southern regionalism. 'OBX' is available for the Amazon Kindle at www.amazon.com/OBX-David-Menzies-ebook/dp/B00LK3FM04/. The Outer Banks welcomes over 7 million visitors each year, many of whom are looking for a good beach read; OBX fills this niche and adds a strong female character to the list of popular murder detectives in the genre. This is the first novel by Menzies, a 22+ year public relations consultant living in the greater Raleigh, NC area. For more information, contact Menzies at obxstory@gmail.com. (more...)
