Have you ever wondered where hard boiled detectives come from? In the Jackson Hole Mysteries series we follow Tom Thompson from a recently sober and lachrymose small town cop to the man that killers fear the most—an armed man who is completely unafraid to die, and unafraid to pull the trigger first. In the first book of the series, Murder in Jackson Hole , Detective Tommy Thompson of the Teton County Wyoming Sheriff's office is introduced as a newly sober “country cop” working in an idyllic place visited by millions of tourists in search of a corner of America untouched by the rush of modern life. Serious crime is rare and Tom is pretty bored with his life now that he has quit drinking and gone through a mostly-amicable divorce. But the advent of an oil boom attended by serious drug trafficking opens Jackson Hole 's quiet community to the evils of a wider world. And a newly sober and naive Deputy Thompson finds himself at the heart of it.
