A serial killer is loose in a quiet, Midwestern town, and two high school students find themselves caught in the middle of it in author Zeddie Slater’s new murder mystery novel, “No Poems for Giants” (published by Abbott Press).
It’s senior year for Ryan Frankovic and Luther Brightwell, and there is only one thing on their minds: basketball. Luther, an eight-foot-nine giant, struggles against the prejudices he encounters in his 1950s Midwestern hometown. Still, he and Ryan look forward to the season. Little do they know something sinister is brewing.
A woman from Ryan and Luther’s town disappeared over the summer, and as the school year progresses, other women in nearby towns are found to have disappeared as well. What’s more, several of the women are connected to Ryan and Luther’s basketball team. It is now up to the duo to put the pieces together and find the murderer before it’s too late.
Filled with drama and suspense, “No Poems for Giants” explores the culture and history of 1950s America through fiction. As a teacher in higher education institutions, Slater taught courses on serial murder, organized crime and 1950s American culture. His book brings this knowledge and expertise together.
