Overview

"Havill...quietly continues a project virtually unique in detective fiction: anchoring his tales of crime and punishment as closely as possible in the rhythms of small-town friends, routines, and calamities." --Kirkus Reviews

"Havill's fifth quietly continues a project virtually unique in detective fiction: anchoring his tales of crime and punishment as closely as possible in the rhythms of small-town friends, routines, and calamities." — Kirkus Reviews
"A strong sense of place and tough but compassionate characters distinguish this series." — Publishers Weekly
"The fifth Gastner mystery is a crystalline gem of dusty atmosphere, small-town personalities, and razor-sharp plotting. It also raises questions regarding the law—especially small-town law—and its attitudes toward the indigent, the homeless, and the privileged. Toss in Gastner, one of the most endearing mentors in crime fiction, for a mystery that is disarmingly simple on the surface but ultimately reveals surprising depth." — Booklist
