When Shawn Sorenson drowned in 1987, no one in La Crosse, Wisconsin, took much notice. They thought it was simply another drunken accident. When another student, Tad Schwartz, drowned a year later, the residents began to suspect foul play. Why else would a healthy young man drown? Even so, the police had no leads or clues to suggest anything other than a tragic accident. Were these truly accidental deaths? Suspicion became reality one fateful morning in 2011 when Police Detective Allan Rouse, Sheriff's Deputy Charlie Berzinski, and pathologist Rick Olson pulled the 15th victim from the river. The body had a tale to tell.
Dr. Olson, physician Patricia Grebin, and researcher Sarah Giles discover an obscure piece of evidence. It leads Berzinski and Rouse down a tangled trail of clues before reaching a mind-boggling conclusion. Will Berzinski and Rouse catch the killer before it's too late? Filled with intrigue, betrayal, and gut-twisting suspense, Death by Drowning will draw readers into a Midwestern town full of secrets and clues as breathtaking as the Mississippi River.

What is the hardest part of writing your books?
The discipline to get started is the worst part of the process for me. At the start, it seems like a process that will never end. Once the first chapter has been written, though, things settle down and get easier. Then it’s a matter of seeing how exciting the plot you create can be.
What songs are most played on your iPod?
No iPod in my office. I have Sirius XM linked to my desktop, and you will find me listening to Garth Brooks, Frank Sinatra, or instrumentalists on Escape. It all depends upon the mood – Garth for the action parts, Sinatra and Escape for more mellow times.
Do you have critique partners or beta readers?
I do, but not a particularly formal group. They are people who read the first book and made suggestions. Now they do it whenever there is a new book. I like their suggestions, because they tell it like it is.
What book are you reading now?
I have just started the new Clive Cussler book, The Romanov Ransom. My previous read was The Reckoning, by John Grisham and I moved through that at a fast pace. If you are an avid reader, a good book just keeps you going, and then when it’s over, you feel sad.
How did you start your writing career?
I believe I always loved to read . . . or at least I remember reading when I was a very young boy. Books and sports were my favorite things. I dreamed about writing for a newspaper, and started by doing some sports stories for my hometown weekly newspaper. I could not believe it when I got a job covering basketball tournaments for the Winona Daily News my senior year in high school. Not sure how many times I re-wrote that first story, but it was a lot.
Tell us about your next release.
My fourth book features the same two law officers that you have met in books one through three. This time they are chasing moonshiners and cattle rustlers. Both my father and my father-in-law were great storytellers, and they talked often about moonshine and rustling. It just seemed fitting to use those messages as the heart of another mystery, Death by Explosion.
