Wolf Haas is the author of seven books in the Detective Brenner series, including two recent Melville House releases, The Bone Man and Brenner and God. Each of the Brenner books has sold over 300,000 copies and been made into equally successful films in Germany. Carl Hiaasen called Brenner and God, "One of the cleverest---and most thoroughly enjoyable---mysteries that I've read in a long time. Wolf Haas is the real deal, and his arrival on the American book scene is long overdue."

The Art of Migration: Birds, Insects, and the Changing Seasons In Chicagoland

A magnificent migrational dance takes place every year in the Chicago area, yet it is often missed by the region's two-legged visitors and residents. The Art of Migration uncovers the extraordinary patterns that play out over the seasons, introducing readers to more than two hundred of the birds and insects that traverse Chicago. With gorgeous full-color watercolors and text by Field Museum staff, it is the perfect blend of art and science.
