** Dry Bones in the Valley by Tom Bouman


In Dry Bones in the Valley, a small town police officer tries to solve a couple of murders that quickly lead him to more complicated problems: how fracking  is dividing neighbor against neighbor, how meth labs and drug dealers are infiltrating the county, and how old family feuds can color everyday rivalries. There will be several more bodies before it’s all over, and one very tired small-town cop. I liked the way the author was able to tell the personal story of the hero, and of many other people in the town. The murders, as is often the case, were a little over-convoluted — but it’s a good story, well worth reading for a good mix of suspense and personal stories.
