Monroe mystery author Bill Ross has published his seventh book in the Monroe Mystery Series, “Who Killed Fritz Zuber?” The book, set in Monroe, chronicles the investigation of a mysterious dead body found in the Eugene Hotel in 1972.  Was it a suicide or murder? Police Chief Brandon Johns and Detective Samantha Gates become very frustrated when all the people of interest they interview are lying to them. Will they sort through all the smoking mirrors, deception and entanglements to lift the veil behind all this duplicity and catch the killer?

Ross writes this series of fictionalized books to lift up our Swiss culture and the quality of life we all share in Monroe and Green County for tourism. This book is available for sale, in addition to the other six books in the series, at the Monroe Chamber of Commerce. The popular series is also available at the National Historic Cheesemaking Center and on
