Smart. Exciting. Original.

“Elegant, eloquent, and elegiac, Kuhlken’s novels sing an old melody, at the same time haunting and beautiful.” novelist Don Winslow

Tom Hickey is “one of detective fiction’s most original and intriguing creations.”  San Francisco Chronicle​


Ken Kuhlken’s HICKEY FAMILY NOVELS have been labelled mystery, historical, suspense, noir, and literary. In short, they are incomparable.

FOR AMERICA is an epic family saga and also an incantation created to help America fulfill its promise and so bring and end to our ongoing Civil War.
