Description - Big Wheat by Richard Thompson

The summer of 1919 is over, and a small army of men, women, and machines moves across the high prairie, bringing in the wheat harvest. Big Wheat is king as people gleefully embrace the gospels of progress and greed. But with Big Wheat comes a serial killer who calls himself the Windmill Man. He believes he has a holy calling to water the newly plucked earth with blood. He has been killing for years now and intends to kill for many more. Jilted by his childhood sweetheart and estranged from his drunkard father, young Charlie Krueger also follows the harvest. But in a newly harvested field, he comes upon a man digging a grave. And in that moment, Charlie becomes the only person who has seen the face of a killer.... Richard A. Thompson, a former civil engineer, now writes award-winning mysteries full time. Big Wheat is a stand-alone historical mystery.
