Join Author, Doc Macomber aboard the Portland Spirit to launch River City the premiere book in his newest series, featuring the cops who patrol Portland’s “Liquid Streets”.

Date: April 27, 2014
Time: 1 p.m. on the dock, and sailing from 2 – 5 p.m.
Where: Aboard the Portland Spirit, 110 SE Caruthers Street, Portland, Oregon 97214

River City chronicles the investigation of Deputy Jason Colefield into the tragic shooting of a child on Sauvie Island. When the FBI arrives, they combine forces to uncover a potential serial killer. With yet another life hanging in the balance, he discovers that the answers he seeks point him to the one place he doesn’t want the go – the buried memories of his own childhood. River City satisfies as both a mystery and a history lesson on the environs of the Pacific Northwest.

“Doc sees much…says little…and writes it all down.” William A. Montgomery

Doc Macomber makes him home on the Columbia River, so it’s a natural fit for him to base his new series on the turbulent waters of the Pacific Northwest. After retiring from the Air Force and a five-year stint with the Special Forces, Macomber retired to his “home” aboard a 42 foot trawler. He expected to live a quiet life only to find that the problems that plague the mean streets of New York were right off his stern: murder, drugs, violence, robbery, DUI, arson and homelessness were all thriving in his liquid neighborhood. Within a month he was visited by the River Patrol who was investigating a murder in his marina: icing on the cake for a mystery writer.

There is no charge for this event, whether you board the Portland Spirit for an hour or stay all afternoon.
