About this title


When a local school teacher disappears from rural West Wheeling, acting sheriff Homer Deters investigates. Before long he's got three more missing persons, two unidentified corpses, a car theft, a twenty-three vehicle pile-up in the center of town, a missing tiger, and a squad of ATF agents to deal with. With no help from the Feds, Homer turns to his buddy, Rye Willis, and West Wheeling's eccentric postmistress, Nina Ross, to locate the missing, identify the bodies, and bring a murderer to justice.

From Booklist:

Dymmoch, author of the Jack Caleb and John Thinnes mystery series, pulls off what very few writers of any stripe can: she writes a full-length, first-person mystery in rural dialect, without the dialect seeming forced or becoming annoying. The dialect is central to the narrator, Homer Deters, who is the acting sheriff of a rural Illinois town, West Wheeling, and is believably homespun and crafty enough to portray himself as "Deputy Redneck" to big-city investigators. A male teacher has disappeared from a missionary school in West Wheeling. Three more people, including an ATF agent, also go missing. Two bodies turn up--one in a swamp, the other dumped next to a highway. More criminal mayhem follows, including the vanishing of a circus tiger, but even with ATF agents breathing down his neck and making fun of him, Homer keeps his cool, handily solving murders and disappearances. Breakneck pace and solid atmosphere are the hallmarks here. Connie Fletcher
