Publisher's Summary

This debut mystery from a fresh voice in Southwestern fiction stakes out the common ground between Tony Hillerman, Elmore Leonard, and Cormac McCarthy.

In a remote corner of the Chickasaw Nation, tribal Lighthorse policeman Bill Maytubby and county deputy Hannah Bond discover the buzzard-ravaged body of Majesty Tate, a young drifter with a blank past. They comb Oklahoma's rock prairie, river bottoms, and hard-bitten small towns for traces of her last days.

Tate was seen dancing with Austin Love, a violent local meth dealer fresh out of prison. An Oklahoma City motel clerk connects her with an aspiring politician. An oil-patch roustabout and a shady itinerant preacher provide dubious leads. Ne'er-do-wells start dying off.

A fluke lead propels Maytubby deep into Louisiana's bayou country, where a Cajun shrimper puts him on the scent of a bizarre conspiracy. He and Bond reunite in the Chickasaw Nation for the eventual face-off at Nail's Crossing.

Home Run Over The Centerfield Wall

WOW! New Author's first book nails it. Though a long novella, I enjoyed every minute. I will put Kris Lacky on my must read list. Off to book two to see how the characters develop.

Better

Enjoyed this better than the Elvises story. Honestly,one reason was because the female cop wasn’t prominent. Not too fond of her that’s due to the over-the-top “hick” voice by narrator. A lot of characters were made to sound stupid and “hickified”The banter and dialog in this book,between the characters, is better,also. Hope there’s another in series.

Great Atmospheric Oklahoma Tale, Murder, Mystery

What a great tale of Chickasaw Tribal policeman, Bill Maytubby and county deputy, Hannah Bond as they work together to solve the murder of a young woman, Majesty Tate, left for the buzzards to pick over. I love the descriptions of the small towns in Oklahoma, many of which I have visited, and the Chickasaw folklore, as well. The hunt for the killer took Maytubby into Arkansas and Louisiana. Hannah Bond, hard nosed and determined, with the memories of her sister's murder always at the back of her mind, is the perfect pair up for Bill Maytubby. Love Maytubby's fiancee, Jill Milton. What a couple. 😊 The writing is perfect, not too sappy, no descriptive sex scenes, but just enough left for the imagination. I hope this series goes on for a good while. I did not figure out who the killer was. Excellent mystery!

Great characters

Really enjoyed the fast paced story and loved the different characters. I would love to see this author continue with a book series featuring these characters.
