Book Description

The Big Mitt by Erik Rivenes

The Indie Book of the Day for 25th of November, 2014!

Genre: Mystery, Historical

Life was finally looking good for Harm Queen when New Year’s Day 1901 dawned over Minneapolis. His old crony “Doc” Ames had just been elected mayor. Queen’s promotion to chief of detectives—and a chance to line his pockets—was in the bag. Then, a gruesome crime at a Hell’s Half Acre brothel brings Queen’s ambitions to a screeching halt. The mayor’s brother and Queen’s new boss, Colonel Fred Ames, seems hell-bent on thwarting his investigation. To make matters even more difficult, Queen’s courtship of Karoline, an upright young Norwegian woman, is imperiled by the appearance of a seductive prostitute with her own game to play. As Queen digs deeper among the gangsters, gaslights and political machinations of turn-of-the-century Minneapolis, he finds himself on the trail of a sinister hobo with apocalyptic ambitions. In The Big Mitt, Erik Rivenes shines a colorful light on a treacherous and corrupt chapter from a great city’s forgotten past.

Read Sample

Erik Rivenes writes late at night when the rest of the world sleeps. He has an unnatural obsession with early American history, especially history that crawls through dank sewers, slips through underground passages into brothel basements, or wheels and deals in smokey back rooms of rancid-smelling saloons.

He also likes more normal things as well, like hiking, farmer’s markets, Calvin and Hobbes comics, watching old James Cagney films, Dairy Queen sundaes, and laying on the grass on summer days and staring directly into the sun.

He shares his time between Minneapolis, MN, Portland, OR and Taipei, Taiwan.
