Local author and freelance writer John Clausen debuts his first novel, a witty mystery called Big Hungry. Released last fall, the book is published by Hukilau. (139 pages, $2.99 e-book on Amazon and Barnes and Noble).
Book summary from the author:
“A dead body…Gunshots…A bewildered ghost mentored by a cowboy angel… Big Hungry is the story of a small-town murder mystery as it unfolds through the eyes of the many colorful characters of rural Tulleyville, North Dakota. From the nosy news reporter to the town drunk, to the spooky loner who lives on the outskirts of town, each quirky Tulleyville resident’s perspective unravels another thread revealing their collective fate. Will the town be flooded to benefit a millionaire’s pet project? Who are the River Rats, and are they dangerous? Will the greasy politician get away with bribery, kidnapping, or worse? And, will the backwoods, one-man police investigation be able to reveal the shooter’s identity?”
