About this event

  • 1 hour

Boswell Book Company presents an evening with Kevin Kluesner, author of The Killer Speech. In conversation with DW Hanneken.

A Black U. S. Senator from Wisconsin gives a rousing speech at his party’s national convention held in his hometown. When he’s gunned down on a quiet Milwaukee street the following morning, Eric Rhodes survives what looks like a straightforward, high-profile hate crime. But nothing is simple in FBI agent Cole Huebsch’s life, not his relationships and certainly not the cases he works. Cole, FBI analyst Li Song, and reporter Michele Fields won’t stop searching for the truth, even when the most sinister and powerful forces in the country align to shut them down. When Cole faces several cold and calculated attacks on his life and the lives of others he cares about, it only strengthens his resolve. But how far are Cole and his team willing to go when the evil they face is above the law?

From Archer Parquette of Milwaukee Magazine: "It's a joy to follow Special Agent Cole Huebsch through the streets of Milwaukee in this fast-paced thriller. Kluesner exceeds the high standard he set with The Killer Sermon to deliver an exciting, humorous, and thought-provoking story with a phenomenal sense of place."

Kevin Kluesner is the author of The Killer Sermon, the first in a series featuring FBI agent Cole Huebsch. He earned both a BA in journalism and an MBA from Marquette University, and he’s worked as the outdoor writer for a daily newspaper, taught marketing and management classes at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and served as an administrator of an urban safety net hospital. He lives in New Berlin, Wisconsin.
