Murder in the Cultural Gardens is Dan's debut into the world of non-fiction. With both BS and Master’s degrees in mathematics he never expected to write a novel.  But when he “discovered” the Cleveland Cultural Gardens he knew that a tale had to be told. Dan is already working on the next book in the series featuring the same trio of young crime solvers.

Meet Author Dan Hanson

It just didn’t seem right to DJ.  A body found bludgeoned in a place known for “Peace through Mutual Understanding.”  But there she was, crumpled behind a bust of composer Franz Liszt in the Hungarian Cultural Garden.   He pulled out his cell phone and dialed 911.  “What is the nature of your emergency?” the dispatcher queried.  With a suddenly very dry mouth DJ managed to get out, “There’s been a murder in the Cultural Gardens.”
