I’m sitting here sipping Eagle Rare neat an musing over how I just reviewed a fantasy by Layton Green, a five part series which is currently on volume 3. I am really enjoying that and now I find that Green writes a darn good detective story as well. A detective finds himself returning to his hometown with his metaphoric tail between his legs. A big deal homicide detective, he found himself doubting his abilities and returned to a perceived bucolic refuge. Then the murders started!
Preach, the detective, is weathering a crisis of confidence and is twisting in the wind and in careers. Thrust into the limelight with a series of unnerving murders, he is struggling to maintain his equilibrium. He has a partner, Kirby, who is riding his own horse of misfortune. Together they struggle to find the killer in an increasingly hostile community and search to find clues written in blood.
I highly recommend it.
