COLD WAR: Murder in the Heartland
Robert L. Tecklenburg
At the height of the Cold War and the Second Red Scare, when McCarthyism
and fear of nuclear holocaust is at its worst, murder draws a small
Midwestern Iowa town into the craze of Soviet spy rings on US soil and
government-sponsored communist witch-hunts.
In one of the coldest
winters on record, Jimmy Novotny is trying to deal with his own
personal demons after returning home from the Korean War to Belle
Plaine, Iowa, and finds himself embroiled in the investigation of
several puzzling deaths. He works to solve the mystery, not just to get
at the truth, but to prove himself worthy of the task – worthy of
anything after the horrors he left behind in the war.
with him – or perhaps against him – is the beautiful redheaded reporter
from Cedar Rapids, Cecilia Brom. She carries secrets of her own. And
then there are others following their own agendas, each making the
investigation for the truth increasingly difficult and dangerous. The
question remains, is Jimmy Novotny up to the challenge, or will the Cold
War freeze him out, leaving a murderer to escape unpunished? Is there
anyone he can really trust to help him get to the bottom of it before
more people die?
