About the Author

“A Death In Lionel's Woods continues the wonderful Winnebago County crime stories by Christine Husom. Her books drop tantalizing clues throughout the stories that keep readers turning the pages. Corky Aleckson is an attractive main character: strong, smart, wounded, lonely at times, and likeable. The scenes about the sheriff's department are accurate and realistic. Ms. Husom always includes a twist to her plots that explore interesting and unexpected aspects of criminal behavior--which makes her books so compelling to read.” Colin Nelson, author of Reprisal, Fallout, and Flashover.

“A Death in Lionel’s Woods” is a fast-paced adventure involving a mysterious death, the buying and selling of women and children, a strange boy who appears only at night, and the harassment of a law enforcement officer.

Sergeant Corinne “Corky” Aleckson and Detective Elton “Smoke” Dawes are on the job again in the fifth entry in the Winnebago County mystery series by Christine Husom.

Once again, Husom engages readers from the start, and takes us on a high speed chase as she and the other members of the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office try to unravel the complex web of clues before someone else gets hurt.

The fictional Winnebago County is based on Wright County, MN, and readers acquainted with the state will have fun recognizing familiar landmarks, as they have in Husom’s previous books.

Husom’s background as a sheriff’s deputy serves her well. Readers become part of the investigation and see how law enforcement works from the perspective of an insider. The level of detail provides a richness to Husom’s work.

Just as Corky struggles to identify of the victims she encounters, and give them dignity and a voice, Husom strives to make her characters real people, not just ciphers.

“A Death in Lionel’s Woods,” is a feast for the imagination as we work side-by-side with Corky and Smoke to uncover what is going on in Winnebago County.

The tension is real, and Husom creates a palpable sense of uneasiness when an unknown fiend is stalking Corky at home, making even an armed sergeant trained in self defense seem vulnerable.

Those who pick up “A Death in Lionel’s Woods” won’t want to put it down until they reach the satisfying, breathless conclusion.

When a woman's emaciated body is found in Lionel's Woods, Sergeant Corinne 'Corky' Aleckson is pulled off administrative reassignment joining her fellow officers of the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department investigating the mysterious death. 'A Death In Lionel's Woods' by Minnesota author Christine Husom is the fifth book in the highly rated Winnebago County Mystery Thriller series. First let me state that I broke one of my cardinal 'reader rules' and began this book before reading the first four of the series. Yay for me! Not once did I feel in the dark or out of the loop on any previous information or character backgrounds. I can't say enough good things about this compelling and riveting mystery. The intricately woven and multilayered plot kept me reading late into the night and at times actually holding my breath. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with the engaging and very likable cast of characters, especially Corky and the delectable Detective Elton 'Smoke' Dawes. More Smoke please. I very happily recommend and give my highest rating to Christine Husom's 'A Death In Lionel's Woods'. You will not be disappointed!

Confession Time: I started reading Christine Husom's current release, A Death in Lionel's Woods, out loud to my husband on Saturday night during an 1 1/2 hour drive home. Our version of audio-books, live. We read as much as we could squeeze into our busy Sunday, too. Monday morning, he went off to work, and I was supposed to wait until he got home to finish it. Right. I tried, but I couldn't put it down. Corky was in danger and I had to find out what was going to happen next... if you like mysteries, grab one of Christine Husom's books. They're quick reads, but very riveting, with characters you feel like you know personally after just a few pages. Both my husband and I love her entire Winnebago County mystery series.

In A Death in Lionel's Woods, the 5th in the series, Sergeant Corinne (Corky) Aleckson, Detective Elton (Smoke) Dawes, and the rest of the Winnebago Sheriff’s Department team are together again, this time, trying to solve a mystery that centers around trafficking of women and children. As always, the recurring cast members are lovable and endearing, the bad guys, vile, dangerous and despicable, and the stories of the victims of the crimes they perpetuate, heart-rending and poignant. I highly recommend all of Christine Husom's books and I loved A Death in Lionel's Woods.

"A Death in Lionel's Woods" is another masterpiece by Chris Husom! I have truly enjoyed all her books, but this one is my favorite. It is a fast read and it engages you to the point that it is a book that is hard to put down! The book is another Winnebago County Mystery with the same main characters we have come attached to in previous books. The setting is based on changed or twisted real locations which are easy to relate to and to envision. The plot has diverse angles and distractions. Clues are carefully and creatively placed throughout the book to keep the reader absorbed.
