Description
1964—Life on the North Dakota farm hasn't always been easy for Marjorie Trumaine. She has begun working as a professional indexer to help with the bills—which have only gotten worse since the accident that left her husband, Hank, blind and paralyzed. When her nearest neighbors are murdered in their beds, though, Marjorie suddenly has to deal with new and terrifying problems. Sheriff Hilo Jenkins brings her a strange amulet, found clutched in the hand of her murdered neighbor, and asks her to quietly find out what it is. Marjorie uses all the skills she has developed as an indexer to research the amulet and look into the murders, but as she closes in on the killer, and people around her continue to die, she realizes that the murderer is also closing in on her.

        "A dark, complex mystery with well-developed characters deeply rooted in their small-town rural setting. Larry D. Sweazy gives mystery readers a rich, satisfying read." --KAT MARTIN, New York Times-bestselling author of Against the Wind "See Also Murder is a riveting and expertly crafted story about the toll a series of murders takes on a salt-of-the-earth North Dakota farming community in 1964. The book is populated by a rich cast of three-dimensional characters, each of whom is affected not only by the crimes that take place but also by the harsh and relentless wear and tear of the weather and the lingering aftereffects of the Second World War. And who better to save the day than Sweazy's protagonist, Marjorie Trumaine, a gritty, thoughtful, and determined freelance book indexer who is just as comfortable using her considerable mind as she is the .22 she dutifully carries when danger lurks? I couldn't put this book down. It's one of the best mysteries I've read in a long time, and I look forward to more in this engaging and powerful series." --DAVID BELL, award-winning and bestselling author of The Forgotten Girl "For a mystery to work, we must be engaged in time, place, and people. See Also Murder does this in spades. Sweazy has a created a new, relatable, and endearing hero in Marjorie Trumaine, the indexer who becomes a detective, and by writing in her voice, a voice of the prairie, demonstrates again that he is as fine a genre writer as exists. But Sweazy goes further. By taking us to the isolated plains of the Midwest during the 1960s, he has found his own perfect backdrop for murder. Like Raymond Chandler's Los Angeles or Elmore Leonard's Detroit, Larry Sweazy can claim the Dakotas as his own, with every approaching lone car a threat, and every silhouette on the horizon a possible killer. In See Also Murder, [he] shows us his landscape brilliantly, and proves that miles of open nothing can be as dark and dangerous as a rain-soaked back alley." --C. COURTNEY JOYNER, author of Shotgun "See Also Murder begins as a deceptively quiet work but is quick to snare the unsuspecting reader with powerful writing and a precise sense of place. Confident, stark descriptions whistle through these haunting pages, borne on unrelenting prairie winds that strip deceptions and leave little hidden. Here is that rare combination of artistic use of language and crackerjack storytelling in a mystery filled with moments of bold, sudden revelation. Equally impressive are reflective passages of admiration for everyday beauty appreciated by unlikely heroic protagonist, farm wife, and indexer Marjorie Trumaine, even in the midst of unexpected brutal circumstances. Sweazy's powerful mystery will guide the reader wide-eyed into the wee hours, savoring the task of picking at the tight weave of crime within. The only disappointment comes in waiting for a second book in what is sure to be a long-lived series."

        Starred review from March 2, 2015
        Set in 1964, this terrific first in a projected series opener from Sweazy (The Devil’s Bones) introduces Marjorie Trumaine, a farm wife and book indexer in Dickinson, N.Dak. Indexing keeps Marjorie’s life afloat. A voracious reader and list maker, she also provides care for her beloved husband, Hank, after a hunting accident left him blind and paralyzed. Noting that “Mother and Father were stiff-upper-lip kind of people,” she shoulders her burdens and struggles to suppress her occasional lustful thoughts about a local deputy. She’s horrified when Sheriff Hilo Jenkins tells her that someone has slit the throats of her neighbors Erik and Lida Knudsen, and she’s not happy when Hilo asks her to research a strange copper amulet found in Erik’s dead hand. As more people die, Marjorie becomes increasingly convinced she’ll never feel safe again. The characters are superbly drawn, and the prairie—its flatness, winds, and critters—is an evocative character in its own right. Sweazy is also an author of western fiction and has won the WWA Spur Award for best short fiction. Agent: Cherry Weiner, Cherry Weiner

        January 30, 2017
        Sweazy’s novel, the first in a series set in rural North Dakota circa 1964, is narrated by its protagonist, Marjorie Trumaine: a smart, remarkably adaptive woman who, since her husband Hank suffered a hunting accident that left him blind and paralyzed, has been caring for him and keeping the family farm in operation by working as a professional book indexer. When an unknown killer begins cutting the throats of her neighbors, Marjorie’s penchant for research leads Sheriff Hilo Jenkins to seek her help in identifying his only clue—an amulet clutched in the hand of one of the victims. Though this rendition features a full cast, voice actress Nanette Savard handles the lion’s share of the work, portraying Marjorie as a determined woman with a subdued Fargo-esque accent. The other performers handle the rest of the well-drawn citizens of Dickinson with similar, equally effective accents, particularly Chris Geneback as the weary, understandably melancholy Hank and James Konicek as the seemingly dependable, deep-voiced Sheriff Hilo. The production includes mood music and sound effects that, in creating wind and rain on the plains, sometimes overpower the dialogue in this dark, well-crafted whodunit. A Seventh Street paperback.

        March 1, 2015
        A North Dakota farm wife-turned-indexer who's cared for her husband ever since an accident left him unable to take care himself takes on still another job-amateur sleuth-when someone begins cutting her neighbors' throats.It's 1964. Ever since a freak accident with his shotgun left Hank Trumaine blind and disabled, he's been wholly dependent on his wife, Marjorie, who ekes out some income by indexing books for far-off H.P. Howard and Sons, and their friends and neighbors for his care. Things take an abrupt turn for the worse when Dickinson Sheriff Hilo Jenkins tells Marjorie that her neighbors Erik and Lida Knudsen have had their throats slit, leaving their college-age sons, Peter and Jaeger, suddenly orphaned. The day after Jenkins asks Marjorie to help him learn more about a mysterious amulet clutched in Erik Knudsen's dead hand brings an even bigger shock: the sheriff's wife, Ardith Jenkins, disappears from Hank's side, where she'd been helping Marjorie, and turns up behind the Trumaine barn with her own throat cut. Nor will she be the last casualty. Sweazy (The Devil's Bones, 2012, etc.) establishes a quiet atmosphere that's somehow never broken by the horrific series of murders. There's not much of a small-town feel to the proceedings, though the tale is sensitive to the rhythms of the Trumaine farm. Nor is there any detection to speak of: after carefully researching the amulet's significance, Marjorie leaps to a conclusion-"It's just a gut feeling," she says-and identifies the wrong suspect. A distinctive bonus, however, is that Marjorie, an indexer to the tips of her fingers, includes a draft index to her own first case. That's got to be unique in the annals of the genre.

        In the first installment of a new series from Sweazy (The Devil's Bones), Marjorie Trumaine is just trying to make ends meet as the primary breadwinner in rural North Dakota in 1964. She works as a freelance book indexer after an accident left her husband, Hank, severely disabled. Marjorie is shocked when the local sheriff tells her that their neighbors were found with their throats slit. As the bodies pile up, Marjorie decides to try her hand at sleuthing and unmask the killer--or be killed herself.
