Welcome Friends,

I invite you to travel with me to Winnebago County, Minnesota and follow the challenging cases Sergeant Corinne “Corky” Aleckson and Detective Elton “Smoke” Dawes get assigned. Ordinary people in the county find themselves in circumstances far outside the ordinary in the medium-boiled Winnebago County Mystery series.

Or for a cozier mystery adventure, go to Brooks Landing, Minnesota and the Snow Globe Shop Mysteries where you’ll get to know Curio Finds manager, Camryn Brooks, and other intriguing and quirky characters you’ll appreciate and enjoy.

 The ninth Winnebago County Mystery “Death To The Dealers” launched November 20, 2021, and has been selling well. If you haven’t read it, please check it out. Here is the blurb: When a man finds his deceased wife’s secret phone, her list of contacts sends him on quest to uncover who caused her death. As he navigates his way into the dreary, drug-dealing world, danger holds a constant presence. A bright spot in his life is his growing attraction for Sergeant Corinne Aleckson, the owner of his canine patient. It’s a relationship that will not blossom the way he imagined.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“Husom goes dark in this well-written, masterfully-plotted and page-turning tale of drugs, murder and revenge made even more compelling by its family dynamics.” David Housewright, Edgar-Award winning author of What Doesn’t Kill Us.

“Husom’s Death to the Dealers is a fast-paced ride. With likable protagonists in Sergeant Corky Aleckson and Elton “Smoke” Dawes to root for, you will be enthralled and entertained from beginning to end as the pair unravel the perplexing drug and homicide cases plaguing Winnebago County. I couldn’t put it down!” Midge Bubany, author, the Cal Sheehan Mysteries.

“Christine Husom’s firsthand knowledge of police procedures shines through in Death To The Dealers. This gripping thriller will keep you enthralled from beginning to end.” Gary R. Bush, award-winning author of the Jamie Sharpe historical adventure series.

“In Husom’s latest Winnebago County suspense, Sergeant Corky Aleckson, aided by her partner Smoke, is not only in hot pursuit of the person responsible for a rash of deaths among local drug dealers, but also trying to track down the source of illicit drugs in the local school. Her life keeps crisscrossing in unexpected and troubling ways with that of Dr. Watts, whose relentless quest to find justice for the death of his wife will put the doctor and Corky on a perilous collision course.” Barbara Deese, author of the No Ordinary Women Mysteries.

“Sergeant Corky Aleckson is in a real mess this time! A vengeful serial killer has taken a personal interest in her just as a mysterious drug dealer’s illicit activities get too close to home. When both threats collide in her face all bets are off in the exciting finale of Death to the Dealers.” Michael Allan Mallory, co-author of the Snake Jones Mysteries.

“Drugs, revenge, and love intertwine in this gripping “Corky” Aleckson and “Smoke” Dawes adventure.” Michael Stanley, author of the award-winning Detective Kubu series.

“Corinne Aleckson is a bright, together woman. She excels at her tasks whether patrolling in a deputy sheriff’s unform with a loaded pistol at her hip or sliding through the brush of a local park in an undercover role. And always in her mind, the risky activity of a teen-aged girl for whom she had some legal responsibility, in this finely written Winnebago County adventure.” Carl Brookins, author, Traces, Sins of Edom, Red Sky, Grand Lac, and the Sean Sean Mysteries.

I have some upcoming events and will be adding more this Spring. I’d love to see you at one of them!
