Publisher's summary

Richard Weatherford is a successful small-town preacher in the Arkansas Ozarks. He’s a proud husband and father of five and has worked hard to grow his loyal flock with strong sermons and smart community outreach. But while Weatherford is a man of influence and power - including a big force in local politics - he’s also a man with secrets.

In the lead up to the 2016 presidential election, Weatherford’s world is threatened when he’s blackmailed by a former lover. Collecting the money the blackmailer demands will be a nearly impossible feat, especially over Easter weekend, when all eyes are on him. So Weatherford will have to turn to the darkest corners of their small town in a desperate attempt to keep his world from falling apart.

Exploring a divided country and a cracked façade through the alternating perspectives of Weatherford, his wife, his lover, and other town residents, Dry County is a powerful story about how far some will go to keep hold of all they know - and all that others think them to be.

Worth it!

Dry County is yet another masterpiece from one of my favorite authors. Jake Hinkson is a master of crafting relatable characters that reflect the worst in all of us. Writing in an austere style and evocative of classic noir, Hinkson uses just as many words as needed (and no more) to sketch a picture that the reader's mind reqdily fills in the minute detail and turns it into a familiar painting.

The performance of this audio book is more of a radio play, and it is incredible. I wish all audio books could be done this way.
