Non-fiction supplement to the historical mystery, The Bootlegger's Nephew (Hilliard and Harris 2012).
Ever wonder how authors do their research for historical fiction? This short supplement describes some of the facts and sources Sarah Wisseman employed to write her story about an Illinois physician, Earl "Illinois" Junker, who used his knowledge of local geography and archaeology to track down a murderer and break up a gang of bootleggers during Prohibition. The mystery is set in central Illinois ca. 1923.
