All these pieces feel so immediate and alive – the voices, every detail – like memoir. They’re intimate, and funny, and full of surprises. They’re big – about The Big Subjects, love, death, sex, loss, longing. A number of these stories are told from the point of view of a young child, sharp-eyed, all senses on high alert. I especially enjoyed “Love, Mona.” The intimate, beautiful portrayal of grief and hope ends with a wordless gesture so tender and expressive, I will never forget it. –Mary Azrael, Editor, Passager

In Belle Plaine, Iowa, the Heartland of America's Bread Basket, where folks in small rural communities value hard work, patriotism, and moral fiber, there's a serpent loose. After a quiet farmer is found hanging from a rafter of his milking barn, Police Chief Jimmy Novotny suspects there's more going on than a simple suicide. But battling demons and ghosts of his own, plus a host of folks eager to close the case, Jimmy finds the investigation more difficult to deal with than he'd expected - until there's another suspicious death. Jimmy doesn't know exactly whom he can trust, especially when confronted with a pretty redheaded reporter from Cedar Rapids who's after a big story.

World War II is officially over, and all Captain Charlie Stanek wants to do is return to civilian life. But General Donovan, head of the OSS, has plans for Charlie that include travel to the Far East in strife-ridden French Indochina. Charlie's sent to Saigon to investigate the death of a lieutenant colonel holding thousands of dollars of diamonds. But as Charlie digs for the truth, he realizes this assignment involves more than the death of one officer. A Japanese police officer and a beautiful, mysterious Vietnamese nationalist help him in his investigation - until he's kidnapped and spirited away to a prison 800 miles north in Hanoi. Then an old comrade from the war comes to his rescue - or so it seems. Charlie just wants to finish this last assignment and go home, but there are bigger issues at stake, as he gradually finds out. If others have their way, he may never make it back to the States alive.
