Publisher's Summary

A woman's chilling disappearance haunts a rural Pennsylvania county in the eagerly awaited new Henry Farrell mystery from the Edgar Award-winning author of Dry Bones in the Valley.

Tom Bouman's Dry Bones in the Valley won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel and a Los Angeles Times Book Prize. The New York Times hailed it as "beautifully written", and the Washington Post called it a "mesmerizing and often terrifying story".

In Wild Thyme, Pennsylvania, summer has brought Officer Henry Farrell nothing but trouble. Heroin has arrived with a surge in burglaries and other crime. When local carpenter Kevin O'Keeffe admits that he shot a man and that his girlfriend, Penny, is missing, the search leads the small-town cop to an industrial vice district across state lines that has already ensnared more than one of his neighbors. With the patience of a hunter, Farrell ventures into a world of shadow beyond the fields and forests of home.

    Story
    "Great story, great writing!"

    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!

    "Sad tale, not always easy to follow"

    Not a police procedural, exactly, but not a rom com fer sure. Sort of a lyrical, depressed tale of rural decline. And chemical dependency, haphazard violence, and whatever is the opposite of resilience. If you can follow the numerous characters & half-submerged plot (missing in action for whole chapters at a time) you've got me beat.

    Very well read, though.
