About Mangrove Bayou

Mangrove Bayou is a small gulfcoast Florida town located someplace south of Naples and east of the Moon and in the midst of the Ten Thousand Islands / Everglades National Park region..

Troy Adam is police chief and head of a small department. For such a small and remote town, Mangrove Bayou seems to be a hotbed of crime, both major and trivial. Troy and his small band of officers deal with it all, assisted or hindered by a collection of residents who redefine the term character.

Stephen Morrill writes about Mangrove Bayou in a series of police procedural mystery novels with a twist, as the Mangrove Bayou police force is small and the location remote. The books combine humor, weird characters, occasional social commentary, and serious police work, all taking place in a unique setting.

I admit to being puzzled. Why buy offers 1 or 2 when offfer 3 is "all of the above" at a cheaper price. I'm not the publisher and so am ignorant of the finer details of book sales.
