Blurb for Straight River

STRAIGHT RIVER is a fast-paced, tension-building story set against the backdrop of a farm crisis in America's heartland.

Two mysterious deaths compel Matt Lanier, a professional musician by trade, into a search for the killer. With no superhero skills other than his brilliant musical mind and razor-sharp hearing, Lanier quickly uncovers a land-grab conspiracy that could mean financial ruin or death for thousands of farmers . . . and for himself.

If you're a fan of unique characters who defy all odds and stand up against powerful, ruthless foes, then you'll love this story of a musician/hero who marches to the beat of a different drummer.

Buy STRAIGHT RIVER--the first book in the Matt Lanier mystery-thriller series--and start your music-laced thrill ride today.
