Christine Husom, a lifelong Minnesota resident, is a former corrections officer, mental health practitioner, and deputy sheriff. She holds an undergraduate degree from Concordia University in St. Paul, and a law enforcement certificate from Metropolitan State. Husom feels called to solving mysteries, and she loves the stories of other mystery writers who know how to make fiction as strange as real life. She is the author of the Winnebago County mystery series: Murder in Winnebago County (2008), Buried in Wolf Lake (2009), An Altar by the River (2010), and The Noding Field Mystery (2012).




When a man’s naked body is found staked out in a farmer’s soybean field, Sergeant Corinne Aleckson and Detective Elton Dawes are called to the scene. The cause of death is not apparent, and the significance of why he was placed there is a mystery. As Aleckson, Dawes, and the rest of their Winnebago Sheriff’s Department team gather evidence and look for suspects and motive, they hit one dead end after another. What will it take to solve the case?
