"Deacon's Crossbow" Book Event with Author David G. Brown, Dec. 12 at Florey's!

Florey's Books welcomes Alaska-based author David G. Brown as he discusses his true crime book "Deacon's Crossbow: The True Story of a Crossbow Killing on Interstate 95"

***Thursday, Dec. 12th 6-9pm***

About the Book:

How does a high school valedictorian, former member of the famed 101st Airborne, respected church deacon, husband and father of three end up with a first-degree murder conviction and serving life without parole? Deacon's Crossbow is a bone-chilling and compelling work of true crime- about fate, fear, facts, and personality, especially that of convict Donald S. Graham.

Donald and his wife were driving home from dance lessons when they happened upon two men on Interstate 95 in Massachusetts. When Donald reached for his crossbow, all hell broke loose. The end result: the male driver is dead and the deacon is in prison for the rest of his life. You'll follow the labyrinth of events from the incident all the way to the present. The story is unique because it includes Mr. Graham's views and sentiments from within the walls of incarceration, as well as perspectives from a free man, the author.

Was justice served? Or was the driver the aggressor and the deacon the victim?
