Tribal policeman Bill Maytubby and Deputy Hannah Bond team up again to solve two gruesome murders in this follow-up to Nail's Crossing
In a driving sleet storm, a farmer has discovered a body snagged on cottonwood roots in the Washita River. Johnston County deputy Hannah Bond realizes it's her elderly friend, Alice. Meanwhile, at the Golden Play Casino, robbers posing as armored-car guards kill a local stickball hero and friend of Chickasaw Lighthorse Police detective Bill Maytubby.
The trail leads through the quarry-scarred Oklahoma badlands to a remote airstrip and a planeload of drugs and untraceable automatic weapons. Also somehow connected are a shady coin-op vending company; a neo-Nazi compound outside Paris, Texas; and a headless janitor in a train-mangled van. As the net tightens, the smugglers get wind of their pursuers and converge on Maytubby and Bond at Greasy Bend Bridge.

An Excellent Book!
A fast paced thriller/police procedural! Better than Nails Crossing, with more humor and better interaction between Bond and Maytubby. I opted to go with the audiobook this time, and I'm glad I did. Bramhall is perfect for the geographical setting and the cast of Texas/Oklahoma characters. The storyline moves very quickly and Bramhall's pace allowed me to follow the action without breaking a nail. I find Bond and Maytubby endearing characters. Bond reminds me of Sheriff Gunderson of Fargo- stoic, no-nonsense, and completely unafraid (if a little bit crazy). Maytubby is intelligent, ingenious, much more personable, and is central to this story. I certainly would not want these two dogged enforcement officers on my tail for some alleged wrongdoing! I really enjoyed Lackey's latest and can't wait for the next installment!
