Festival of Crime

6 x 9, pb, 162 pp

Throughout Minnesota, people flock every year to more festivals than you can shake a stick at. Most come for the food and fun, but a few visitors have more devious intentions in mind. Here members of Twin Cities Sisters in Crime expose the dark underside of dog-sled races, music festivals, and county fairs. Sometimes humorous and always rich in local color, these mysteries abound in psychopaths and twisted cops, cagey con men and shrewd amateur sleuths. They'll keep you guessing 'til the fireworks are over and the midway lights go out.

The Case of the Greedy Lawyers
Carl Brookins
$15.95 (pb) 264 pp
ISBN 978-1-932472-71-4

In his latest who-dun-it, Carl Brookins taps into a venerable private eye tradition. The central character is a wry detective named Sean Sean who’s been around the block a few times and knows how to roll with the punches. As enjoyable for it humor as its unexpected twists and turns, this is one mystery not to be missed. Jenny McLarin writes in Booklist, “readers will fall head over heels for the diminutive Sean Sean, a Minneapolis P.I. whose small size belies a huge heart.”
