Book Image Not Available
Photographer Sam Dawson returns in this mystery series to clear himself as a suspect in the murder of a nursing home resident. Sam turns his camera toward the elderly and meets Hans Gottlieb, Depression-era carnival wrestler and former Olympian. Hans prefers to live among his brutally harsh and haunting memories and has come to the north woods to die. In Sam’s quest for the truth about the murder, he discovers the disturbing reality that the aged are often not who they appear to be. He and his drooling bloodhound will be set upon by wolves and humans alike as Sam exposes decades-long secrets in this Gordian knot of a mystery.
Skeletons in the closet are sometimes best left undiscovered and undisturbed. Enter at your own risk the closet of Hans Rudolf Gottlieb, Depression-era carnival wrestler and former Olympian who has come to the north woods to die. As he moves silently between the brutally harsh and haunting memories of his past, Hans attempts to keep the many secrets that define his life in this epic story of enduring love and tragic consequences. The author of the award-winning THE PUMPKIN EATER: A SAM DAWSON MYSTERY, Steven W. Horn, continues his blend of dramatic, intelligent, fast-paced storytelling. Photographer Sam Dawson, bored with taking pictures of cemeteries and in defiance of his editor, turns his camera toward the elderly residents of a nursing home. “We’re going to see some old people,” he tells his drooling bloodhound. “It’ll be our little secret.” But Sam uncovers more secrets than he bargained for and the disturbing truth that the aged are often not who they appear to be. Sam and his “puddle of dog flesh” will be set upon by wolves and humans alike as Sam, the primary suspect in a resident’s murder, exposes decades-long secrets to unravel this Gordian knot of a mystery. WHEN GOOD MEN DIE: A SAM DAWSON MYSTERY races toward a shocking conclusion while challenging the reader to consider the sins of their loved ones’ past and to ask questions before it is too late. But be careful, you may not want to hear their answers.
