Dream with Little Angels by Michael Hiebert Balances Murder, Mystery, and Growing Up

Posted by on Jul 1, 2013

97807582857511Meet Abe Teal. Abe is 11 years old. His mother, Leah, is the sole detective in their town, Alvin, Alabama. Alvin is a small town with a dark history that its townsfolk would like to keep buried for as long as possible. Until the past comes back to haunt them. And Leah’s daughter, Caroline, goes missing…along with two other girls.

It’s up to Abe to tell the story of his mother’s search for truth and justice, all while balancing his false feelings of safety and naïveté…and well, just being a kid.

Mystery novelist Michael Hiebert brings us his debut literary suspense text, Dream with Little Angels and stays true to his elements of mystery and redemption in the horrific.    

Young Abe is reminiscent of Scout in Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and somewhat of Susie Salmon in The Lovely Bones. At 11 years old, he learns of secrets and is forced to become courageous in spite of his discoveries, all while his mother struggles against small-town bureaucracy, the town’s  past, and the longstanding mystery of ‘Who is kidnapping all these girls?’.

Read Michael Hiebert’s honest and raw text and see that there is still hope when all seems lost. Dream with Little Angels is his first suspense novel, but he’s no stranger to mystery and fantasy. A two-time consecutive recipient of the Surrey International Writer’s Conference Storyteller’s Award and one who was published in The Best American Mystery (edited by Joyce Carol Oates), Hiebert is sure to tell a thrilling tale, and you can hear our interviews with him on ID Radio.
