A awesome phenomenal writer and Joe Barrett is fantastic. Read the first one and listened to the second. More... more!!!
Let me start by saying that the author excels at creating a sense of place and culture. The way he described his characters often left me thinking, "I know exactly what he means, but I've never thought of it that way before." As an example, the description of a ne"er do well, drug addicted character riding his bike through town as "looking both younger and older than he actually is."
This is a long story arc (for a mystery) and the characters evolve (or devolve) as the story progresses. Just as in real life, some of Henry's pursuits fizzle out or are proven wrong; I appreciated that these felt representative of what an officer would experience when trying to do his job.
This story delivers--a great mystery with lyrical descriptions of rural Pennsylvania and the characters. I hope there's another book with Officer Henry!
