Praise for Unforced Error... 'A modern-day Nick and Nora, the quick-witted Rep and the literature-loving Melissa trade sophisticated quips that may make readers wish they had paid more attention in English class. Good fun.' -Booklist 'Michael Bowen's Unforced Error scintillates with witty badinage, trenchant humor, deft plotting and amusing characters. Bowen's command of Civil War arcana floored me, and his sly cultural commentary cuts like an 1840 heavy cavalry dragoon saber.' -Michael Biehl, author of Doctored Evidence Intellectual property attorneys, romance publishers, and librarians-the very last people you'd expect to be mixed up in murder! Add a pinch of authentic Civil War re-enactors and a sparkling tour of Kansas City, and voilà, a classic yet up-to-the minute crime. Rep and Melissa Pennyworth head west from Indiana to a re-enactment on a Civil War battle in Kansas City, Missouri. Rep is really in quest of a cutting-edge copyright case connected with romance publishing house Jackrabbit Press. He finds a corpse instead.... Michael Bowen, a trial lawyer practicing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is the author of numerous mysteries and non-fiction works. He graduated from Harvard Law School. Bowen lives with his wife and their three younger children in Milwaukee.
