In his adventure suspense novel “Marshlanders” (published by AuthorHouse), author Steven S. Schneiderman offers readers an enjoyable mystery adventure set in Chicago and points south of there.

In “Marshlanders” Schneiderman returns to his doddering protagonist Louie Leppedimay and Leppedimay’s cohort of attractive assistants to solve a murder mystery.

“The inert body was ballasted with four bowling balls; eye-pikes drilled in the sides; roped together, rolling stock and former person. A flat wind-skimmer boat conveyed body and brief associates into backwater swampage. It was consigned to the mud in a side channel; in a hole where the boat driver knew alligators generally frolicked.
‘Gators, snappers, pick ‘em clean by Friday.’
‘Never seen nor heard from again, amigo.’”

Schneiderman believes the appeal of “Marshlanders” is its difference from many other suspense novels. “There are multiple mysteries and a little engineering science thrown in,” he says. “There are no gruesome graphical descriptions. There are no graphical sexual encounters but plenty of innuendo. There are problems an avid detective reader can figure out ahead of the solution explanations. There is laughter and there are liars, and not even much bad language.”
