Description: With an Anthony Award nomination for Best First Novel and with his second novel hailed as "sophisticated, funny, and diverting" (The New York Times), Donald Harstad has built up an increasingly passionate following. He writes the way Iowans live, with no-nonsense direction, an innate sense of right and wrong, and with a dry Midwestern brand of humor. No one is, nor are they capable of, writing the sort of thriller that Harstad seems to pen effortlessly.

His everyman hero, Deputy Sheriff Carl Houseman, and Carl's investigative partner, Hester Gorse, are so charmingly characterized and specific that readers find themselves swept away by the authenticity of Harstad's voice. His plots are impeccably plausible, making the shocks and twists all the more chilling. And with "The Big Thaw", Harstad fans and new initiates alike are in for a wild ride as Carl and Hester unsuspectingly step into a scheme to pull off a million-dollar siege of Iowa's biggest economic asset -- the Colonel Beauregard riverboat casino. In today's urban-dominated thriller landscape, Donald Harstad is working the heartland beat to perfection.
