'SECRETS OF SAN BLAS' AUTHOR TO VISIT LIGHTHOUSE THIS WEEKEND
On May 16, 1938, E.W. Marler, the assistant lighthouse keeper of the Cape San Blas Lighthouse was brutally murdered. No one was ever charged with the crime.
More than 70 years later, the case remains one of North Florida's great unsolved mysteries--until now.
Charles Farley's new novel about the crime, "Secrets of San Blas," solves the murder, at least fictionally.
Farly will be visiting the novel's setting this weekend for a book signing April 21 and 22 at the Cape San Blas Lighthouse, the scene of the crime.
Farley's novel is both fast-paced and historically accurate. While the solution to the mystery is supposition, the descriptions of the area's history, natural beauty and pre-World War II culture are not.
I'll also be signing books at the No Name Cafe in downtown Port St. Joe this afternoon, Friday, 1:00--3:00. Hope to see you there.
