Praise

“A surprisingly brutal yet expertly told tale.”

Booklist

“Shames has created an endearing hero with an old-fashioned sense of honor…. An enjoyable, often disturbing, read.”

Kirkus Reviews


PRAISE FOR THE SAMUEL CRADDOCK MYSTERIES
 
“There may be no protagonist in our genre today as decently compelling as Samuel Craddock. And there may be no better chronicler of the character and complexity of small-town America than Terry Shames.”
—WILLIAM KENT KRUEGER
, author of the Cork O’Connor Mystery Series

“Small towns in mysteries can be too cute or too weird to be true, but Jarrett Creek is the real deal and Samuel Craddock is the jewel in its crown. Flawed, complex, decent, and captivating—spending time in this town with the Chief is a delight.”
—CATRIONA McPHERSON
, author of Quiet Neighbors
 
“I love Samuel Craddock, I love this town, and I love this series of books.”
—TIMOTHY HALLINAN
, author of the Junior Bender mysteries

“An amazing read. The poetic, literary quality of the writing draws you into a small town and its interesting, secret-carrying residents.” 
RT Book Reviews 

“Shames has come up with a sleuth for the long haul.”
