Join us in the store on Thursday, July 13th at 7:00 PM to hear Jerry Rice read and discuss his new book, "Raven Avenging." Book signing to follow!
Should a citizen ever take the law into his own hands? When Gunnar “Raven” Ravendal’s beloved niece Kari is lured into sex slavery and murdered, he must choose between law and order and vigilante justice. As Raven moves across the country’s Mafia-controlled terrain, romancing criminal law professor Linda Simone and dodging hot-in-pursuit New York Organized Crime Strike Force detectives Flash Maruska and Henry Grogan, he uses his great strength and hunter’s cunning to stay one step ahead. Set in the late 1970s, when the “Minnesota Pipeline” was first exposed, Raven Avenging is a complex and gripping read exploring a subject still relevant today.
Jerry Rice is a Harvard educated trial lawyer at Hellmuth & Johnson who has handled and tried a wide variety of cases in courts at all levels throughout the United States since the early 1960s. He is the author of two law-related books and thousands of briefs and memoranda as well as occasional poetry, short stories and memoirs. Raven Avenging is his first novel. He regards himself as a member of our justice system, rather than a businessman. Vindicating the constitutional rights of his clients has given him great satisfaction throughout his career. He is a native of Roseau, MN in the far northwest corner of the state and is an avid outdoorsman and conservationist. He and his wife Pat love world travel and the cultural life of the Twin Cities of Minnesota and Taos, New Mexico.
