Heart-stopping Novel By One of Missouri’s Own

In NIE News On
- Updated

“I read “The Weight of Blood” in one sitting, aghast at the heart-stopping, uncompromising plot by Laura McHugh, a Columbia, Mo., author. McHugh loosely based her debut book on a murder that occurred in Lebanon.

McHugh delivers a seamy, hard-hitting mystery, centering on the evil underside of human nature – deviant behavior from men driven by greed and desire. Expect a page-turner set in the Ozarks.”

These first two graphs offer a glimpse into the monthly book column “Novel Ideas” available to newspapers at no cost through Missouri Press. Chris Stuckenschneider, book editor for the Washington Missourian, reviews three newly released adult reads every month.

To access the March Novel Ideas column, which features a review of McHugh’s book, visit mo-nie.com and use download code: novelmar14. To learn more, contact Stuckenschneider at cstucky@me.com.
