Newell Searle's "Copy Desk Murders"

MN author Newell Searle will be in to discuss his debut mystery!

Farm foreclosures and protests rock southern Minnesota in 1984 when newspaperman Boston Meade learns his summer intern lies dead in a ravine. He believes the intern was murdered to protect whoever killed the Minneapolis detective whose bones he found at a derelict farmhouse. But key evidence is missing. The town's leaders were hostile to the research, including Boston's brother, the Alton County sheriff. When he dismisses the detective's death as a motive, Boston takes up the intern's research. He works alone except for Ginger O'Meara, the editor he just hired, but her memories of his old betrayals make her loyalty tenuous. Chasing a killer, they uncover a criminal web that touches everyone in town. And while they are running for their lives, they are compelled to face the betrayals that separated them.
