    In September 1983 a farmer in small town Ruthton, MN, and his son take revenge against a banker whom he blames for the loss of his farm and his inability to start over The story isn t about the murder so much as how these very different men came to this farm on this day from unlikely beginnings Rudy Blythe was born and raised on the Philadelphia Main Line, as was his wife His dream of living a larger life brought him to purchase of a bank in rural Minnesota, where he struggled to improve life In September 1983 a farmer in small town Ruthton, MN, and his son take revenge against a banker whom he blames for the loss of his farm and his inability to start over The story isn t about the murder so much as how these very different men came to this farm on this day from unlikely beginnings Rudy Blythe was born and raised on the Philadelphia Main Line, as was his wife His dream of living a larger life brought him to purchase of a bank in rural Minnesota, where he struggled to improve life for those around him at a time when farming and banking were imploding Caught in the tentacles of forces they could neither see nor understand, Rudy and his wife, Susan, struggled and failed to make the bank a force for good Withdrawing, they were pulled back in to an end that seemed inevitable, a clash of personalities at a time of unseen destructive forces.The author explores in detail the individuals involved in the bank and farming community, the economic forces at play, and each step that led to the death of three men and the conviction of one on murder charges The author is even handed as he explores the world of Jim Jenkins and his son, Steve, the small community in Minnesota and another in Texas where fates were sealed, and the problems Rudy and Susan were unable to overcome.This book was published in 1986, and not much has changed as far as farming is concerned Well written and timely over the decades since, this book delivers a solid story as well as keen understanding of how fate plays out

    It was a very well written account of murders that were committed 30 years ago in the little town of Ruthton, Minnesota What brought this unlikely cast of characters involved in the tragedy together was a story in itself The author did a nice job of describing the main characters and was unbiased in his account of the whole thing It was also interesting to discover, after reading the book, that the jury s difficult verdict has proven to be correct, with a confession coming out years later Al It was a very well written account of murders that were committed 30 years ago in the little town of Ruthton, Minnesota What brought this unlikely cast of characters involved in the tragedy together was a story in itself The author did a nice job of describing the main characters and was unbiased in his account of the whole thing It was also interesting to discover, after reading the book, that the jury s difficult verdict has proven to be correct, with a confession coming out years later Also, the prosecutor in the case is now trying to help to get the man convicted of the murders on parole, after serving time for the last 30 years The story of this tragedy still goes on
