A True Crime Event with Author Maureen Boyle


A True Crime Event with Debut Author Maureen Boyle

Join us for a riveting true crime event with debut author and investigative journalist Maureen Boyle on Tuesday, September 25 at 7 pm. Her new book is "Shallow Graves: The Hunt for the New Bedford Highway Serial Killer". 

About the book: The women were dead before anyone realized they were gone. It was 1988, before the opiate epidemic of the 2000s, before families openly talked about heroin addicts, before there was a public face to the addiction.

New Bedford is a tight knit city with large, close families. It is also a fishing community where people know death can come unexpectedly on the seas. But no one expected what happened in 1988. Eleven women went missing that year. Nine were later found dead along local highways surrounding the city. It is officially unsolved. 

No one should get away with murder. Shallow Graves: The Hunt for the New Bedford Highway Serial Killer tells the story of the investigation through the eyes of the investigators and some of the families. 

Maureen Boyle, an award winning journalist, has been a crime reporter in New England for more than 25 years, including at the Standard-Times of New Bedford during this serial murder case. She holds an undergraduate degree in journalism from the University of Bridgeport in Bridgeport, Conn. and a master’s degree in criminal justice from Anna Maria College in Paxton, Mass. She is now director of the Journalism Program at Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts. This is her first book.

This event is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
