Local writer and former Mono Lake ranger David Carleâs new book is out on local shelves.
âThe Spotting Scope,â a murder mystery based loosely in the Mono Lake area, is the prolific authorâs second book of fiction after publishing 12 successful nonfiction books.
âI read mysteries for relaxation, and I wanted to try my hand at one,â Carle, 61, said. âI especially wanted to portray a protagonist that enjoys life. Itâs not a humorous or light book, necessarily, but itâs not as dark as some mysteries, either.â
