Local mystery author passes away

June 10, 2010

Eleanor Taylor Bland’s mysteries combined police procedurals with contemporary African American themes. Female cop Marti “Big Mac” MacAlister works with her white partner Matthew Jessenovik  in the fictional Illinois town Lincoln Prairie (which was a stand-in for Waukegan ).  We have most of her books beginning with her debut mystery Dead Time. Read more about her here.
