Product Details


"Harstad punches all the paranoia buttons."
The New York Times Book Review

"Compelling … [with a] spectacular finale … Harstad writes ‘cop talk’ that’s not only believable but often (intentionally) funny."
Publishers Weekly

"Harstad gets better and better with each book."
Library Journal

"Escape the urban thriller to the heartland with Harstad, a real rising star."
Booknews from The Poisoned Pen

"Plenty of laughs, skewed violence, and marvelous takes on how weird Iowa winters can be — in the third, and best, procedural featuring easygoing Nation County Deputy Sheriff Carl Houseman, from a former Iowa deputy sheriff who knows the territory inside out."
Kirkus Reviews
