Duluth native Tim Jollymore, author of "Listener in the Snow," signs copies of "Observation Hill," his new, fast-paced thriller that explores class differences in the city by the lake.
With an exquisite sense of place (beginning writers should read this book to understand that term), Jollymore tells the story of Detective Paul Tuomi, caught between the West Side where in the 1960s workers risked death in steel mills controlled by wealthy industrialists on the East Side. Tuomi's heart is in the West, where his connections put his job in the East in jeopardy as he follows his instincts and pursues the trail of a spoiled teen son of a privileged East Side family.
The murder at the center of the story was influenced by the Elizabeth Congdon murder at Glensheen.
