Letter from a reader

Following are portions of a letter emailed to me recently from a Wauwatosa native who read “Murder in Wauwatosa.”

Hopefully, this stirs up some positive memories for others who grew up there.

Hi Mr. Hoffman:

I just finished Murder in Wauwatosa and wanted to send a quick email thanking you for taking the time to author it.

I grew up in Tosa. I spent many, many hours biking and hiking along the
Menomonee River in what we called “The Bajas” – the trails south of the river
and east of suspension bridge.

Hoyt Pool was a favorite location when I was a swimmer and later as a Milwaukee County Lifeguard.

I had no knowledge of Buddy Schumacher before happening across a mention of your book online.  I ordered the book the same day.  My personal connection to the area left me finding the story fascinating and I finished the book in just a few
days.

Thanks again, I appreciated your book.
