Description

"The twisty follow-up to the Hillerman Prize-winning The Territory, featuring tough smalltown Texas police chief Josie Gray It was pure luck that Josie Gray spotted Cassidy Harper's car, abandoned on the side of the road. If she hadn't, then she'd never have found Cassidy, lying nearly dead of heatstroke on the desert sand beside the body of a Mexican immigrant. But Cassidy can't explain why she was out for a walk in the midday desert heat, let alone how she happened upon the corpse. And once Josie sees the ominous wounds on the man's body, she knows she needs to find the answer fast, before her own life is in danger. Tricia Fields's The Territory marked her as talented new author of Southwestern crime, and Scratchgravel Road marks an inventive new mystery set in the unique world of smalltown Texas. "

Professional reviews

"Nicole Poole's narration reflects the no-nonsense style of Chief of Police Josie Gray. On a day when it's 104 degrees, Gray sees a car belonging to a former employee of the department parked along the road and figures that Cassidy is not out for a casual walk in the desert. Upon investigation, she finds Cassidy passed out from heat stroke next to a badly decomposed body. Poole skillfully portrays the calm and patient Gray as she and her colleagues unravel the murder. She also depicts the community's growing suspicion of the former uranium-processing plant, where the dead man worked. With a deft use of pace and tone, Poole moves the plot to a successful conclusion. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
