It’s situated in rugged Central Arizona with tremendous draws for mysteries.” In 2017, Barry merged his interest in mystery and his skills in writing, adding in a large dollop of technology. The Mystery Searchers Book Series was born. The first five books have been released – number six, The Vanishing in Deception Gap, is on the way.Barry’s wife, Linda, passed away in 2019 and The Mystery Searchers Book Series is dedicated to her. “Linda proofed the initial drafts of each book and acted as my chief advisor.” The couple had been married for 49 years and had two children. A number of the fifteen grandchildren provided feedback on each book.
