The Story Behind This Book
I began the series a little less than a decade ago, focusing upon the time and place of my childhood, southern Minnesota. The more I explored the 1930s the more I became intrigued about the story possibilities. So I focused first upon rural life, south of the Twin Cities and in the second mystery novel moved into town with my characters. Soon we were meeting members of the mob, discovering how they cooperated with Nazi sympathizers who looked to Nazi Germany's domination of the world. Novel by novel the plot thickened. Little did I realize as I began this project how deeply Nazi leaders were committed to the old gods of the North who would lead the Aryan race to rule the world. And now in the third novel an ancient runestone, found along the shore of a northern Minnesota lake, reveals that the goddess Freya, consort of Woden, chief and All-Father of the gods, plans to lead Aryan conquest through an earthly avatar, a child about to be born, Freya's Child!
