A crooked hat is key to Detroit-set murder mystery in latest from author Harry Dolan

When writing mystery novels, author Harry Dolan keeps track of two different things: what the reader thinks is happening and what is really happening. 

“You want to play fair with the readers as much as you can, so there needs to be clues about what’s really going on. But the clues can’t look like clues or they’ll give everything away. It comes down to control: You have to reveal things at the right time, not too soon or too late,” explained Dolan, 51.

A native of Rome, NY, currently living in Ann Arbor, Dolan is the author of the David Loogan mystery novels: “Bad Things Happen,” “Very Bad Things” and “The Last Dead Girl.” The first two books occur in Ann Arbor. 

His latest, “Crooked Hat,” is set in Detroit

Richard DeCample remembers the moment he saw one of the most famous faces in American history.

“I had hooked up to the airplane and I was under the wing, but I could look up and I could see him looking out, but I’m like, ‘What can he see?'” 

DeCample, a 72-year-old who lives in Renton, was referring to the man’s eye wear.  

“I mean he had pretty dark glasses on,” he said.

Shenandoah author participates in #RockOneSock campaign

(Shenandoah) — A new children’s book is the centerpiece of a campaign battling issues surrounding missing and exploited children in the country.

Shenandoah artist/author Karen Falk recently published a new book entitled, “The Socks that Ate the Washing Machine.” Proceeds from the book are being donated to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, as part of its #RockOneSock campaign. Falk, who has written and illustrated many other children’s publications over the past decade, says she struggled to come up with another idea for a new book.

“I was sitting on the couch, and I was saying, ‘I don’t know how I’m going to get started writing again, but I know that I have to do this,'” said Falk. “So, I downloaded an idea from above, and it’s all about violence, and what the results are of that. It’s a very fun, 54-page book that will turn it upside down for

Michigan author weighs-in on recent DB Cooper theory, reintroduces his own theory

 

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. – It’s the hijacking that has hijacked American folk lore, and citizen sleuths alike, for the past 45 years.

Who was D.B. Cooper and whatever happened to him after he parachuted from a jet over the Pacific Northwest on November 24, 1971.

News broke earlier this week that a group of amateur scientists have developed a new theory, involving the black, clip-on tie the Cooper suspect seemingly left behind on the Boeing 727 before he parachuted out of it. Using an electron microscope, the science sleuths say the Cooper suspect may have
