At the time of his retirement from the Portland Police Department, Bruce oversaw all violent crime and homicide investigations for Maine's largest city. During his 27 years in law enforcement, he also spent four years working counter-terrorism with the FBI where he earned the Director's Award, which is the highest honor a non-agent can receive.
Bruce has used his extensive background to craft the Detective Byron series. He is also a regular contributor to both the Maine Crime Writers blog and Murder Books blog. Search our catalog for the first book of the Detective Byron series, Among the Shadows, or book two, Beneath the Depths. You can also look for his short story "Fool Proof," in Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's Best American Mystery Stories 2016.
