Minnesota boasts more than its share of homegrown thriller novelists, and Chuck Logan ranks near the top of that list for many. He is best known for his six-book Phil Broker series, featuring a larger-than-life military veteran and ex- undercover agent. After the Rain, the fifth in that series, earned Logan a Shamus Award nomination for Best P.I. Hardcover Novel in 2005. Hollywood adapted its follow up, Homefront, for the big screen in 2013, with Jason Statham playing Broker alongside co-stars James Franco and Winona Ryder. Logan’s newest book, Fallen Angel, is a gripping standalone. A wounded Army pilot, only recently returned from Iraq, struggles to make sense of the incident that brought down her helicopter – and finds herself part of something much bigger.
