My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Very good book about the exciting and/or boring life of a journalist surrounded by crime, corruption and small town idiosyncrasies. It’s written by a professional journalist who might have drawn many examples from real life rural Virginia settings and situations.
The characters are well developed and believable. You probably know a few of them.
Short chapters with descriptive chapter titles lead to quick page turning, and finding solutions to a few trashy issues also leads to page turning.
Good job, Darrell Laurant!
