“Bush Blues marks the debut of an Alaskan crime solver as true and flawed as the state itself.”—Tom Begich, Alaska Senator

Police Chief Brady Snow solves two and four-legged crimes in the bush of wild Alaska. Grizzly bear attacks, small plane crashes and violent crimes all come under his jurisdiction. He works with larger-than-life, hard-drinking bush pilots, local villagers Frank N Beans and Stanley Beans, as well as other rich characters, such as Trooper Dick and Mayor Moses. Bush Blues is a realistic, stark, and funny look at the life of a police officer on the edge of civilization and the unique existence of people living off the grid in rugged Alaska.

He recently retired as the chief of police in Sitka, Alaska. Schmitt graduated from Minnesota State University in 1993 with a BS in criminal justice and later received his masters of justice administration from the University of Alaska.
