First, it is a clever, well--written murder mystery.
Timothy R. Roberts
About two-thirds of the way through the book, I reached a point where I had to finish it that evening -- and for me that is what defines a well-written story.
Denis C. Hancock
It manages to do an interesting job of capturing the attitudes of the time as well as the changes (both cultural and technical) that were occurring.

This book is a good read on several levels. First, it is a clever, well--written murder mystery. The author gives enough clues to allow the reader to project ahead to try to figure out "who done it," yet a surprise twist at the end only makes sense when one thinks back to the clues. Secondly, it is filled with social history of a time long gone that shows the author has a good grasp of that time. Thirdly, the book easily allows the reader to draw parallels between the present time and the United States one hundred years ago.

The book is set in the fictional town of Franklinton, Missouri, and its equally fictional Worcester College. The year is 1913. The hero, Heinrich Kueter, who has just finished a term in the Army, has arrived to assume a job teaching college level American history. Immediately, he runs into prejudice against his German heritage, a powerful fraternity culture that feeds racial and ethnic hatred against Asians, Blacks, Irish and Germans, political corruption, and a dedicated suffragette named Sally Ann Giddings who owns the local newspaper. Soon this mix is compounded by the murder of Kueter's new friend, Tommy Lee, a Korean immigrant student at the university. The story builds from there as Kueter attempts to solve the murder.

Throughout, the reader learns about Missouri in the early twentieth century. In 1913, the state was still coping with the rift among its people from the Civil War era when a large minority of Missourians sided with the Confederacy but the majority of the state' population supported the Union. During the war, Confederate sympathizers, unable to create an effective regular military response the Union control, engaged in a murderous and destructive guerilla war.

Teutonic Cross is a mystery set in a Missouri college town in the early 20th century. It manages to do an interesting job of capturing the attitudes of the time as well as the changes (both cultural and technical) that were occurring. The characters come alive and the story takes a number of unexpected turns. Particularly as I got close to the end, I found it hard to put the book down.

The Teutonic Cross Is a powerful read. I had the honor of speaking with James Muench (the book's author) and was able to discuss the book to an extent. I was not first aware of the underlying deeper Christian message this book entails and when I read it I personally did not find it. I challenge you to pick up a copy and see if you do. I am a new fan of the book and I must point out that younger ears are not suited for this read. For moms looking for something to read with younger children this would not be the book of choice. I would on the other hand recommend for all other ages to read because this is a treat for the mind and packs a mystery as well.

I will end my review thanking James for his time and for writing a book that one can sit back and enjoy.
