Riassunto: PORCUPINE COUNTY gathers together in an omnibus edition the first three novels in the much-praised Steve Martinez series set in the wilderness of Upper Michigan. The first is about murder by bear, the second about homicide and drugs deep in an underground copper mine, and the third concerns a grisly?and deadly?game played with human bodies. "He really hooks us with his whimsy-free descriptions of life?from wedding dances and town-hall debates to the dead-end future seen in the eyes of a high-school dropout?in this beautiful but economically depressed region," wrote Marilyn Stasio about SEASON'S REVENGE in her New York Times Book Review mystery column. "Steve Martinez is an intriguingly flawed protagonist, and the claustrophobic, everybody-knows-all-my-secrets paranoia of rural, small-town life is unerringly portrayed," Wes Lukowsky said of A VENTURE INTO MURDER in Booklist. Roger Ebert, the Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic, wrote of CACHE OF CORPSES: ?Add Henry Kisor?s deputy sheriff Steve Martinez to the list with Lew Archer and Travis McGee. . . . Kisor?s riveting plot weaves together computer gamesmanship, gruesome forensics, local politics, wary romance and inherited Indian instincts into a terrifically readable thriller . . . Couldn?t put it down.? All proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to FRIENDS OF THE PORKIES (www.porkies.org), a nonprofit organization aiding the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in Ontonagon County (prototype of Porcupine County) in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Among the Friends? many activities are cleaning up highways and trails in the park, organizing the yearly Porcupine Mountains Music Festival, running a Folk School, sponsoring an artist-in-residence program, and providing volunteers for park-related community events.
