From the author of the Woods Cop Mystery series comes a new collection of stories about life in the Upper Peninsula. The UP is often considered its own character in Heywood’s tales and now we have a book dedicated to this supporting character. For all the times you wanted to know more about the world Heywood’s popular characters came from, like Grady Service, Limpy Allerdyce, and Luticious Treebone, now is your chance. For Yoopers who are far and away (and some who are not so far away), one thing is true for them all: They all want to return above the bridge ASAP. Heywood’s collection of stories shares with his fans why.
Joseph Heywood is the author of The Snowfly, Covered Waters, The Berkut, Taxi Dancer, The Domino Conspiracy, the ten previous Woods Cop Mysteries, Hard Ground: Woods Cop Stories, Harder Ground, and the Lute Bapcat Mysteries Red Jacket and Mountains of the Misbegotten. Featuring Grady Service, a contemporary detective in the Upper Peninsula for Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources, and Lute Bapcat, a Rough Rider turned Michigan game warden in the 1910s, Heywood’s mystery series have earned the author cult status among lovers of the outdoors, law enforcement officials, and mystery devotees. Heywood lives in Portage, Michigan.
