A SUSPICIOUS DEATH

When Frank Beck, a sympathetic dreamer on a lifelong losing streak, is found hanged during a lonely Minnesota snowstorm, everyone assumes that he committed suicide. But Minneapolis Homicide Detective Marshall Bahr can't make sense of the numbers inscribed on Beck's right arm or the fact that a guy who was described as sloppy could tie a perfect hangman's noose for himself...

A LEGENDARY BATTLE

Mars begins to dig deep into Beck's life and uncovers an obscure fact in the dead man's ancestry-a connection to the Battle of Gettysburg-and to make sense of its bearing on this homicide, he needs to understand nineteen seconds of action at the end of this historical battle. Could Beck's death-by-hanging be related to the Civil War?

A PSYCHOTIC KILLER ON THE LOOSE

Then another body turns up-and another. Now Mars is on the trail of a serial killer whose motive seems to be related to a contemporary controversy about Gettysburg. From the freezing Minnesota winter to Richmond, Virginia, Mars embarks on an investigation where he discovers that past and present co-mingle-and old grudges lead to modern murder

"Erickson writes in a fine style, and she conducts the procedural drill like a trouper."

--The New York Times Book Review

"A thoroughly satisfying narrative, a sympathetic protagonist, descriptive details, and clever plotting place this follow-up to Third Person Singular high on the "buy" list."

--Library Journal

Synopsis:

While investigating an apparent suicide by hanging, Minnesota detective Marshall Bahr reconstructs the events that led to the man's death and unearths a dizzying conspiracy involving a Civil War-era flag and the legacy of the Minnesota Volunteers. Martin's Press.
