Donald Levin’s new novel, The Baker’s Men, is scheduled for publication in early March.
The second fast-paced mystery in the Martin Preuss series finds Ferndale Police detective Martin Preuss called to investigate a savage shooting at a local business late one Easter Sunday evening. Was it a random burglary gone bad? A deliberate execution involving the homeless Iraqi War vets who work at the store? Most frightening of all, is there a terrorist connection with one of the slain men?
Struggling with these questions, frustrated by the dizzying uncertainties of the case and hindered by the treachery of his colleagues who scheme against him, Preuss is drawn deep into a whirlwind of greed, violence, and revenge.
Elizabeth Sims, author of the Rita Farmer and Lillian Byrd series, said the first Martin Preuss mystery, Crimes of Love, ”delivers all the elements of a solid police procedural, including a missing child, a determined detective with a fractured heart, slimy suspects, and a surprising ending. I commend Don Levin for bringing realism to an outrageous story of love and violence.”
