Author Event - Whiskers of the Lion: An Amish-Country Mystery Book by P. L. Gaus, PhD
Sheriff Bruce Robertson is charged with finding Fannie Helmuth, a young Amish woman who is hiding from a murderous drug ring. Wrestling with a recurring childhood nightmare, Robertson finds himself torn between allegiance to the legal system he upholds and the beliefs of the Amish people he has sworn to protect. Author Paul L. Gaus’s extensive knowledge of the culture and lifestyle of the Ohio Amish comes from over thirty-five years of travel throughout Holmes and surrounding counties in Ohio, where the world’s largest Amish and Mennonite population sprawls out over the countryside near Millersburg, Wooster and Sugarcreek. Gaus retired recently as the Benjamin S. Brown Professor of Chemistry at the College of Wooster, where he was Chairperson of the Chemistry Department. He received his bachelor’s degree from Miami University and doctorate from Duke University. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
