Highly recommend this book. Interesting and surprising crime thriller, made unique by its very authentic small farm town setting. Couldn't put it down.
Very well written and easy to read. Couldn't put it down.
Brilliantly written thriller and the villain is completely unexpected. I look forward to reading more by this exiting new novelist
