Silt
by Alternating Current and Chris Geier




Overview -
Cincinnati, 1856. German immigrant Werner Bosenbach has a part-time job collecting shady debts and a full-time drinking habit. When he is hired by a wealthy widow to hunt down those responsible for her husband's death, Werner is drawn deep into a city bursting with corruption, nativism, and long-simmering racial tension. From violent dock workers and crooked marshals, to operators of the underground railroad and the slave hunters they oppose, Werner must navigate the dangers and divisions of his adopted home to find some answers and, with any luck, some lager. Appealing to fans of Raymond Chandler's drunken detective Marlowe meets Cormac McCarthy's oddball preachers and wanderers, and filled in at the cracks by the immersive atmosphere of Faulkner and Flannery O'Connor, SILT travels to the overlooked past of the Midwest with a story that still rings all too familiar today, humming with debut author Chris Geier's poetic prose and unique eye for detail. Part mystery, part thriller, part crime noir, part literary historical, SILT brims with dark humor and timeliness. Find out more at http: //tinyurl.com/siltspiel
