A 2016 Readers Favorite Honorable Mention winner - Murder Mystery
As the new sheriff in the rural town of Macon, Pennsylvania, Chris DeAngelo digs into a series of unsolved cases - only to unearth a dangerous secret that puts him into a killer's crosshairs..."Brilliantly written and truly suspenseful" (San Francisco Book Review)
When small-town deputy sheriff Chris DeAngelo is suddenly vaulted to the top law enforcement job, his first case is the disappearance of a local meth dealer. It looks like a routine case of a marginal petty crook gone missing, but as Sheriff DeAngelo dutifully follows the evidence he plunges into a disturbing web of treachery and deceit that rocks the placid hunting town. This crisp, imaginative thriller boasts a vivid sense of place, richly drawn characters, and an intricate plot that keeps unfolding until the very last page.
"A captivating crime thriller bursting with rural flavor and hard hitting revelations. Highly recommended for all crime & mystery fans, but especially for those of the Justified book & TV series.
You'll savor DeAngelo's discoveries through his own eyes as he fumbles and second-guesses his way through them en route to a compelling character arc.Coupled with a pace that is perfectly suited to both the character and the rural setting, this book - reminiscent of those in Elmore Leonard's Raylan Givens series - is highly recommended."
