Please join us on Saturday November 30 at 3:30 pm when Jerry Sarasin
will read from his second novel, Frozen Flamingo Blues
, and sign copies for those who ask nicely. The "Yooper" mystery, set on Michigan's Upper Peninsula in the wintertime, features Milo, a down-and-out blues musician. While he is trying to mend his relationship with his long-estranged brother, Milo gets caught between the mob and small-town residents who have hit upon a unique, if illegal, way to subsidize the local economy. Milo then has the bad fortune to fall in love.
Jerry's first book was The Last Deer Hunt: A Yooper Mystery, published in 2008. He grew up on the Upper Peninsula, where they have two seasons: winter and the Fourth of July.
