Art of Deception filled with twists and turns

Edgar's picture

By Michael Tidemann

Who doesn’t like a good mystery?

Well, Brenda Donelan has written a great one. What’s particularly interesting about Donelan’s Art of Deception is that it’s set in South Dakota, Donelan’s life-long home. Donelan grew up on a Stanley County cattle ranch, attended South Dakota State University in Brookings and worked in Aberdeen as a probation officer and later as a college professor. She currently lives in Sioux Falls.

Marlee McCabe, Donelan’s main character in the novel, shares many similarities to the author. As a criminology professor, Marlee mirrors Donelan’s background both in law enforcement and in academia.
