Dog’s Run

Dog’s Run

Life is good in Elmhurst, Ohio. The war is over, the economy is booming, and the future looks bright. But just across the deep ravine known as Dog’s Run is a different life, one where times are always hard and dreams seldom come true. When Wanda Jean Reider, a beautiful young woman from the wrong side of town, is found dead in Dog’s Run secrets begin to come out. Secrets that will expose hidden sins and a dark side of life carried on behind the manicured lawns and inside the back rooms of the stores along Main Street. Secrets that will erupt in violence and lead to a showdown that will change the lives of some of Elmhurst’s best known citizens forever.

Nick Russell, New York Times Kindle bestselling author of the Big Lake mystery series, weaves a tale of intrigue, lust, and broken dreams that you will remember long after you finish the last page. One early reviewer said of Dog’s Run, “It’s gut-wrenching, fast-paced, sometimes crude, brutally honest, and often sad. It is also Nick Russell’s finest writing to date. Well done!”

    Life is innocent in the little town of Elmhurst when two young boys discover a body of a young woman at Dog’s Run. What happens next will change the life of this little town and the people that live there.

    Set in the early 1950′s, some will object to the language used, as this isn’t our politically correct modern times. But that is the way people thought and talked back in the “good old days.” Corruption, greed and plain old bigotry rear their heads while a police chief and newspaper editor try to do what is right.

    Russell’s dialog is right on – taking us back to those days right after “The Big War” and before the era when people woke up to the bad things that were happening. One can hear their uncle’s and father’s conversations on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

    Dog’s Run is a bit edgier than Russell’s previous Big Lake series with less humor but is his best work ever. I couldn’t put it down.

    DOG’S RUN is an excellent book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The author’s portrayal of small-town America, the snobbish town of Elmhurst, back in the 1950′s, where the bad side of town is called Dog’s Run, seemed authentic, and the characters, both good and bad, seemed so alive. My Kindle was like a movie screen as I read along. I could picture the inhabitants and their world just as if I were watching a picture show of them way back then in Dog Run’s rundown theater. Historical, entertaining, and very creatively written, DOG’S RUN, in my book, is a winner!

    Prejudice and Small Towwn Politics, October 28, 2013

    This review is from: Dog’s Run (Kindle Edition)
    I have been a fan of Nick Russel’s Big Lake series since he began writing them several years ago. I found his Dog’s Run to be nothing short of excellent. Growing up in a small town in Illinois I saw the same type of prejudice and thinking among the residents. He has captured the true images and thinking of that time period. It is a must read for anyone looking to learn about America in the post Korean War era. Nick Russel has once again delivered a fine written work. Once again, a must read.
