In the year 1889, Swayzee, Indiana bakery owner Nikolai Kaminski appeared in Grant County Circuit Court on charges of murdering his wife Sasha, and her accused lover, Tony Romero. Before being sent off to the Indiana State Prison in Michigan City to serve his twenty-five years-to-life sentence, Kaminski vowed to seek revenge against all the members of his jury, the judge, and even his lawyer.
Eighteen years later, the prisoner managed a successful escape in the dead of winter, and by spring, a rash of unconnected killings began taking place in the town of Marion. One by one, men from the community were systematically being slain at the hands of an unknown assailant.
After being asked to assist the Marion Police Department in their ongoing investigations, Grant County Deputy Sheriff Captain Benjamin Stewart and his team attempt to unravel this strange quagmire before other innocent lives would tragically meet a similar fate.
Alan E. Losure is a Hoosier author who enjoys writing historical fiction novels set in small local towns, allowing his readers to feel what it was like to walk the brick-laid streets of the 1890’s. Those were simpler times compared to today’s hustle and bustle. Still, our ancestors experienced all the pain and suffering we deal with today but lacked our modern tools in criminal investigation.
Alan is happily married and lives in Gas City with his charming wife Susan, and their mischievous, early-morning alarm cat Sophie.
