    The Hanging Tree: A Starvation Lake Mystery

    The critically acclaimed author Bryan Gruley, Chicago bureau chief for The Wall Street Journal and former Kalamazoo Gazette reporter, shares his newest book, The Hanging Tree: A Starvation Lake mystery , with Kalamazoo audiences. The American Booksellers Association recently chose The Hanging Tree as the Top Pick on August’s IndieNext List.

    “Gruley does it again in this second Starvation Lake mystery. With his journalist’s eye for detail, he transports the reader to small town, hockey-obsessed northern Michigan, where they experience a lifestyle and come to know the inhabitants fully. The characters have even more pull this time around, and the pacing is ‘keep-you-up-too-late’ perfect! I’m looking forward to installment number three. Go for the hat trick, Bryan!” —Beth Simpson, Cornerstone Books, Salem, MA
