Mystery writer Joseph Terrell




"Joseph has six books in the mystery series featuring crime writer Harrison Weaver, set at North Carolina’s Outer Banks" Has anyone read any of them? Good beach reads? I search through my library didn't get any hits, so I was going to eat up a B&N Christmas gift card to pick up all six and take them on vacay (18 day.....woot woot) with me.

So, any opinions?

Fun, easy reads, and it's fun to read about the local landmarks, restaurants and other establishments. I've read all of the books in the series and look forward to the next, assuming he will keep writing about Harrison and friends!



RE: Mystery writer Joseph Terrell




Highly Recommend!

I had purchased book #5, "Dead Right Returning", the last time I was at the Buxton Village Books but hadn't read it.....Now, this trip to Avon, I decided to download to my Kindle the others and read in sequence.....They are a fast and good read...well written.....Good character development.....I suggest reading in sequence to get the flow.....I hope there are more Harrison Weaver mysteries....You know it's a good series when you finish 6 books and want more......Enjoy!....



RE: Mystery writer Joseph Terrell




I hope they are good!!! I just ordered the first 4 to my Kindle....Take along & have it to read while in Frisco. I love a good mystery series. If I like these I'll get the last 2. Thanks for the info!!


RE: Mystery writer Joseph Terrell




Yeah - I can't believe he isn't more widely distributed. I only found him because someone made a comment on the OII facebook page about the lost colony murder - saying he was reading a "fictionalized account" and someone else asked him what book. I downloaded #1 to my kindle (no hard copy option) and purchased the other five in paperback.

They will get donated to my local library - I expect vacationers to get out there to Buxton books and buy one and support the guy.

After reading this, I ordered the first book in the series. My 2 favorite things, mysteries and the Outer Banks... perfect!

Well two down, 4 to go - I also picked up Hatteras Blue by David Poyer. I don't remember which of the authors mentioned nutria and mink being in the wetlands of eastern NC, but one of them did. Anyone know if there is any truth to that?

Definitely plenty of nutria...I don't know about mink.


RE: Mystery writer Joseph Terrell




Thanks for posting this! Purchasing these 6 books is must. Thumbs up

I will pass your comments off to Joe. We are friends and go to the same Church. I believe all or most of his writing is completed in France. He is a really nice and friendly fellow by the way.

Bobbyg, I saw a mink on HI a few weeks ago right on the side of 12 heading to ramp 27.


RE: Mystery writer Joseph Terrell




My Wifi access has been sketchy (but Slicon Travel has been excellent) but was finally able to google it and found that both nutria and mink though not "indiginous" to eastern NC is now widely found.

And thank you for passing kind words off to Joe Terrell - the manteo bookstore had him as a very good (and sweetest) local author. I thought that was nice.


RE: Mystery writer Joseph Terrell




You all piqued my interest in this series...so since I'm not down in Manteo, yet, I bought the first in the series (Tide of Darkness, (The Lost Colony Murders Book 1) via Amazon. As I began to read it, I knew I'd just read a newspaper article that referred to the true life murder: http://www.newsobserver.com/opinion/article209906689.html

Thought some of you might find the article of interest.

On a much lighter note, it is fun to read about the area and recognize so many familiar places...and even "recognize" some characters. So thanks, Kai, for bringing the series up "by Harrison Weaver" however really written by Joseph Terrell. Wink smiley

*Edited because I realized that Harrison Weaver is the fictitious writer - in the book. smiley with shades


RE: Mystery writer Joseph Terrell




Thanks for the tip. I have started the series and I am really enjoying the story being set in the OBX

Just found another recent article about the as yet unsolved murder, this one is apparently the second in a series of follow-up articles in the Coastland Times: http://www.thecoastlandtimes.com/2018/05/05/lost-colony-murder-in-the-dentists-shadow/ I missed the first column, but here is the intro to this one: "As we reported here last Sunday, the State Bureau of Investigation assigned cold-case investigator Tony Cummings to the unsolved homicide of Brenda Joyce Holland in response to our columns. I hope this veteran SBI investigator can finally crack the 1967 case and bring closure to Brenda’s family, whether that leads to one of the several longtime suspects in the case or someone new. The most important thing is that closure."

If you're interested in reading the previous articles that prompted this cold case investigation, click on John Raily's name in the article and you'll be shown his previous pieces, or just click here:http://www.thecoastlandtimes.com/author/john.railey/

I spoke with Joe yesterday after church. He was thankful and humbled by his mention on the Connection. He did state to keep an eye open...he has a new book that will be released soon. He also thanks you all for your kind words.
