Crucian Author Debuts at Undercover Books

St. Croix author Jesse MacWilliams will sign copies of her mystery thriller, "Mastermind," from 5-8 p.m., on Thursday, Dec. 13, at Undercover Books in Gallows Bay. The reception and book signing will take place during the Gallows Bay Holiday Festival, a celebration of the season with music, moko jumbies and extended hours of shopping at Gallows Bay stores.
It is an intriguing suspense novel, told from the viewpoint of female Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Morgan Delaney. The story begins with the murder of a young female district attorney in San Antonio. Dr. Delaney investigates the death and links it to several recent homicides of single professional women.
While the story is strictly fictional, author Jesse MacWilliams's expertise in forensic medicine is authentic, which comes as no surprise since the author is actually the nom de plume of St. Croix's own medical examiner, Dr. Michelle DuPre. Like Dr. Delaney, the central character of her novel, Dr. DuPre is a forensic pathologist, a medical doctor with advanced specialized training. Also like her creation, DuPre had worked as a police detective before attending medical school.
