Larry Millett presents Strongwood: a Crime Dossier

The seventh in Larry Millett’s "Sherlock Holmes in Minnesota"  thrilling mystery series pursues the tangled truth behind the killing of the spoiled young heir to an industrial fortune. 

It is 1903 in Minneapolis and amid allegations of seduction, rape, and blackmail, Michael Masterson is shot dead and Addie Strongwood goes on trial for first-degree murder. As the case unfolds in a welter of conflicting evidence and surprise discoveries, a jury must decide whether Addie acted in self-defense or killed her one-time lover with the coldest of calculation.
