The magic bullet : a locked room mystery featuring Shadwell Rafferty and Sherlock Holmes by Larry Millett ( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
St. Paul, Minnesota. October 1, 1917. High above the city, a renowned local financier named Artemis Dodge lies facedown on the floor of his armored penthouse sanctuary, a single bullet hole in his head. Thirty stories up, in the city's tallest building, and not a shred of evidence or sign pointing to anyone having broken into the wealthy man's fortress. It is -- to all appearances -- an impossible crime. Enter Shadwell Rafferty: Irishman, St. Paul saloonkeeper, sometime detective, and old friend of the celebrated sleuth Sherlock Holmes. Summoned by Louis B. Hill -- son of railroad magnate James J. Hill -- to investigate, Rafferty descends into a world dominated by greedy tycoons and awash in political intrigue and wartime fearmongering. Suspects lurk in every corner of the city -- including Dodge's beautiful young widow, his slippery assistant, and a shadowy anarchist -- and Rafferty pursues them from the streets of Ramsey Hill and the rooms of the Ryan Hotel to the labyrinthine caves under the Schmidt brewery. Matching wits with his foes at the police department and his unsavory rival, the St. Paul detective Mordecai Jones, Rafferty knows that in order to bring a killer to justice he must first unravel the riddle of a single bullet fired in a locked room, three hundred feet above the streets of St. Paul. --
Once There Were Castles Lost Mansions and Estates of the Twin Cities by Larry Millett ( )
8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Lost Twin Cities, Larry Millett brought to life the vanished architecture of downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. Now, in Once There Were Castles, he offers a richly illustrated look at another world of ghosts in our midst: the lost mansions and estates of the Twin Cities. Nobody can say for sure how many lost mansions haunt the Twin Cities, but at least five hundred can be accounted for in public records and archives. In Minneapolis and St. Paul, entire neighborhoods of luxurious homes have disappeared, virtually without a trace. Many grand estates that once spread out over hundreds of acres

Strange days, dangerous nights : photos from the speed graphic era by Larry Millett ( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For three decades, starting in the 1930s and ending in the 1950s, the Speed Graphic camera was synonymous with photojournalism. Championed by acclaimed photographers like Arthur Fellig (a.k.a. Weegee), the Speed Graphic was lightweight and incredibly durable - and it could produce stunning images. Press photographers of the day created a new visual style that was as blunt, powerful, and immediate as a left hook." "Driven by the desire to fill newspaper pages with sensational images, press photographers shot everything, day and night: automobile accidents, fires, murders, all the cop news that fought for a hot spot on the Front Page. They also covered uncounted numbers of civic affairs - pictures called "grip-and-grins" in the trade: school events, sports, celebrities, oddities both of nature and humanity." "Veteran journalist and mystery writer Larry Millett has unearthed over 200 such images from the archives of the St. Paul Pioneer Press and the St. Paul Dispatch. He tells the stories behind the pictures and offers brief biographies of some of these pioneering photographers."--BOOK JACKET

Strongwood : a crime dossier by Larry Millett ( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
" The place is Minneapolis, the year is 1903, and Michael Masterson has fallen in love, or so he claims, with Addie Strongwood, a beautiful working-class girl with an interesting past and a mind of her own. But their promising relationship quickly begins to disintegrate before reaching a violent conclusion. Amid allegations of seduction, rape, and blackmail, Michael is shot dead and Addie goes on trial for first-degree murder. As the case unfolds in a welter of conflicting evidence and surprise discoveries, a jury must decide whether Addie acted in self-defense or killed her one-time lover with the coldest of calculation. Reconstructing the case through trial testimony, newspaper stories, the journal of Addie's flamboyant defense attorney, and her own first-person account as serialized in the Minneapolis Tribune, Larry Millett builds a suspenseful tale of love, money, betrayal, and death. Sherlock Holmes and Shadwell Rafferty, long known to readers from Millett's previous mysteries, play crucial roles in the unraveling of the case, which also offers a glimpse into the sharply divided worlds of the rich and the poor at the dawn of the twentieth century.
