Melvin Litton presents us with a familiar and likable bunch of rowdy young men taking chances, chasing dreams and adventuring through the post Viet Nam days in the hemp fields of Kansas. "The Boys" share the stage with an unsavory cadre of violent hardcore criminals bullying through to their own ends, entwined with a pair of lawmen working to solve a double murder.
Litton's King Harvest runs the gamut of calculated misadventure, true innocence, pure evil, unsolved mysteries and dusty ghosts of the past. Great Read!

Melvin Litton superbly executes a complex, rich story centered on a murder in rural Kansas in the '70s.  His tale is so much more than simply the hunt for the killer; instead, it's a tapestry of interconnected characters, motives, and passions, all of which converge in a dramatic resolution.  Mr. Litton takes care to give depth to all his characters, suspense to all the drama, and delivers in the climax.  Much, much more than a murders mystery....a great story.  Highly recommended.
