9781936182350: The Snow Angel: A Novel

Based on a true story, this gripping novel of crime and redemption covers the kidnapping of a young boy during the week before Christmas and the three detectives who lead the investigation—Ralph Kane, Isaiah Bell, and their boss, Inspector Roberta Easterly. Enraged and anguished by this savage act—which seems to have been motivated purely by greed—yet frustrated by the political maneuverings inside the police department, Kane and Bell must each confront personal and racial demons as they cross moral boundaries in order to chase down several leads from sources within the city's various criminal networks. As the tragic loss of the child brings the community to a standstill, it compels all involved, white and black, criminals and cops alike, to look for the remaining shred of goodness in their lives.

About the Author:

Michael Graham is a former crime reporter and investigative journalist. He has worked for the Los Angeles Daily News, the San Diego Union-Tribune, and the Detroit Free Press, where he covered the case on which this novel is based. He is a former member of the team of journalists behind the groundbreaking book on the Medellin drug cartel, The Cocaine Wars, and has worked as a screenwriter. He lives in Santa Monica, California.

Review:

"Like Hemingway, Graham doesn't waste time with verbal flourishes; he gets to the point quickly and brutally with a scalding cynicism that makes the book such a compelling page turner, painting in bold, broad strokes images of the hell and desperation of an inner city nightmare. The Snow Angel is also a story of redemption and change in the central character's life, a personal story, which gives the book such compassion and power. It is an authentic, tough, and brutal picture of our world."  —Anthony Hopkins, actor

"In addition to being a riveting police drama, The Snow Angel is an insightful—and very human—commentary on the state of race relations in today's America. Ultimately, it is a story of healing—the next necessary step for our still-evolving nation. Mike Graham has done a masterful job depicting the transformative power of love and forgiveness, even in the most horrible of circumstances."  —Louis Gossett Jr., actor

"Most fiction writers trail after guys like Michael Graham with notebook in hand, hoping to glean authenticity for their stories. Mike's been a military counterintelligence agent, a criminal investigator, and an award-winning crime reporter. First he lived it, then he wrote about it. Check him out. He's the real thing."  —Chuck Logan, author, After the Rain and Homefront



"Goes way beyond the traditional police procedural. Deeply moving, this novel not only takes us through the commission, investigation, and resolution of a horrible crime, it lays bare the inner workings of interdepartment rivalry, the politics of policing, and, most important, into the wounded hearts and souls of those who struggle to remain in touch with their humanity as they deal, hands on, with the lowest and worst in our society."  —Mike Farrell, Emmy-winning actor, author and activist
