Another good novel from Thomas H. Cook, continuing in the melancholy tone he tends to write in. Good strong characters, plot moves along but is not fast paced. Keeps you turning the page.
Main character Roy Slater left Kingdom County after a double homicide that rocked his hometown 25 years ago. He's now come back to spend one last summer caring for his dying father.
When a body is found in the woods and his first and only love Lila is connected to the corpse, it's Roy who's sworn in by the Sheriff to discover the truth.
