Ann Arbor's a Little Deadlier in Author Harry Dolan's World
In author Harry Dolan's world, Ann Arbor can be a pretty deadly place.
The Ohio transplant who came to the college town 13 years ago, has used the town as a setting for his mystery/suspense novels, which features a character David Loogan, who is the editor of a crime magazine who always bumps in to trouble. Loogan's girlfriend happens to be a detective for the Ann Arbor police.
Dolan's first book, Bad Things Happen, which came out in 2009, had eight or nine murders, and that was over a period of about a month, he tells NPR, which profiled him a recent piece.
He also includes pieces of Ann Arbor in his books.
In downtown Ann Arbor, Mich., on Liberty Street, the vegetarian restaurant Seva serves mushroom sliders and yam fries that both the crime writer and his characters are quite fond of," NPR writes.
In 2011, he penned his second book Very Bad men.
