Thank you for joining us on the Virtual Book Tour for The Grand, a Thriller by (, Water Street Press, 268 pages).

“Wilson crafts a classic crime thriller plot and combines it with a complex sense of place in this multifaceted novel.

The mystery is a joy to read, as its simple beginnings give way to a much more complicated truth with plenty of twists and turns to follow.

The mystery may bring readers to the table, but the vibrant characters and Jackson Hole setting should keep them turning pages.”

Chicago cop Dean Wister takes a forced vacation when he is on the brink of a breakdown after the death of his wife. During his summer solstice in Jackson Hole, where he met her years before, he is called in by local police to consult when a notorious Chicago mobster is found dead in the Snake River.

What has drawn the hit man west to murder a popular local citizen and pollute the pristine mountain enclave of the rich and famous—is it love, sex, money, or power?

Or is it somehow related to the Presidential campaign of Wyoming's favourite son?

Dean's investigation threatens to uncover the secrets of a group of memorable suspects, ranging from rich tycoons to modern day cowboys, with political consequences reaching far beyond the small resort town.

As Dean follows the leads in the case from Jackson Hole to Chicago to Washington D.C., he also struggles to cope with the personal loss that threatens his mental stability, as the nocturnal visits from his deceased wife suppress his will to let her go and make him question his purpose in life. The climactic scenes contain reveals the reader will never see coming.

A funny, romantic, sexy, roller coaster thriller!

About the Author

After a career working in an international consulting firm and as a financial executive with two public companies, Dennis D. Wilson returns to the roots he established as a high school literature and writing teacher at the beginning of his career.

For his debut novel, he draws upon his experiences from his hometown of Chicago, his years living, working, hiking and climbing in Jackson Hole, and secrets gleaned from time spent in corporate boardrooms to craft a political crime thriller straight from today's headlines.

Dennis lives in suburban Chicago with his wife Paula and Black Lab Jenny, but spends as much time as he can looking for adventure in the mountains and riding his motorcycle.
