About this title

Synopsis:

Susan Koefod's debut novel was declared a "smashing debut" by Library Journal and a finalist in the Midwest Book Awards. In WASHED UP, a shocking discovery on the banks of the Mississippi River forever changes 11 year-old Abatha Cox and Somerset Hills, the small Minnesota community she calls home. Lead investigator Arvo Thorson is the only person trusted enough to investigate the tragic murder, but he's drowning too--in a toxic cocktail of whiskey, vodka and gin--and his career will be dead in the water unless he can solve the crime. Christine Ivory, the brainy, fashionable and compulsively organized social worker caring for the girl has never been more intent on thwarting Arvo. A second novel in the series, BROKEN DOWN, was released in September 2012 and a third will be released in 2013. 
Book includes guide for book groups.

"A bold new voice in the crime genre."  -- William Kent Krueger, Minnesota Book Award winning author of Thunder Bay
 
"Arvo Thorson is an ex-smoker and current drunk with a weakness for blondes, and he's about to have a heart attack. My kind of detective . . . washed up and on the case. Readers are going to like this guy." --Steve Thayer, New York Times bestselling author of Saint Mudd
 
"WASHED UP is rich with suspense, poetic descriptions, and fully-fleshed, sympathetic characters. Susan Koefod is a writer to watch!" --Jess Lourey, author of the Lefty-nominated Murder-by-Month Mysteries
