"Thirteen talented authors weave a single thread of murder, mystery, hog slop, pork barrels, casinos and motorcycle godivas. Something's rotten and asmirk in Illinois." -- Don Flynn, author of Ordinary Murder and four other Ed Fitzgerald novels

"Talk about a fun idea--all these talented writers working on the same project at the same time. Sit back and enjoy!" --Ed Gorman, Shamus award-winning author of Murder in the Aisle, The Autumn Dead, and The Night Remembers, and editor of Mystery Scene magazine -- Ed Gorman
"An unprecedented high-octane blend of humor, talent and hog farms! You will ask yourself the questions: (1) have these people been in the cornfields too long? (2) have they been fermenting their corn? (3) how can I benefit the Peoria Public Library?" -- Barbara D'Amato, Agatha award-winning author of The Doctor, The Murder, The Mystery; the Cat Marsala mystery series, including Hard Women; and her new title, Good Cop, Bad Cop

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0962461377, Paperback)

"A human head crashes through a window. A naked woman zooms by on a motorcycle. A sleazy lawmaker gets an arrow in the back. "That's life in central Illinois--or at least the twisted version of central Illinois concocted by 13 writers collaborating on a tongue-in-cheek mystery." So writes Christopher Wills of the Associated Press in his recent article covering the new serial book, NAKED CAME THE FARMER. Building on the success of NAKED CAME THE STRANGER--a collaborative effort of 20 Newsday staffers back in 1969--and on the success of NAKED CAME THE MANATEE--a suspense thriller cooked up by 13 Miami-based writers in 1995--now comes NAKED CAME THE FARMER, a satirical, round-robin murder mystery drawing on the talents of some of Illinois' top writers.
