welcome to the website for Richard A. Thompson, author of Lowertown, Fiddle Game and Frag Box...

Richard's Big Wheat, won the 2012 Minnesota Book Award for Best Genre Fiction.

Frag Box was named as a finalist in the 2010 Minnesota Book Awards.

Publishers' Weekly says about Frag Box: "A dash of romance, plenty of action and an appealing,
wise-cracking hero enhance this detective story with an old-fashioned noir flavor."


Mary Ann Grossman of the St. Paul Pioneer Press says, in part, "This is mystery writing at its best -- a cool sense of place, an appealing protagonist who isn't a tough guy and an intricate plot."
