Disappear Our Dead by Maine writer Gin Mackey

Gin Mackey

Gin Mackey is the author of two wildly different novels, one serious and one silly. Her most recent work is Disappear Our Dead, a midcoast Maine mystery, featuring amateur sleuth and home funeral guide Abby Tiernan. Kirkus Reviews says it “Goes beyond a cozy, small-town mystery to consider…immense and difficult matters.”

She is also author of Suddenly Spying, a madcap caper, described by readers as “laugh-out-loud funny,” “zany,” and “a hoot.”

Her short story “The Demise of My Wives” was published in Best New England Crime Stories 2016, and her story “Swimming Lessons” appeared in the anthology Fish or Cut Bait.

Gin is a past president of the New England chapter of Sisters in Crime. Her decades-long dream of moving to Maine has come true. She lives on the midcoast in Owls Head, where she’s hard at work on her next novel.
