Five months later I‘m using this book for the #bright post. 😆

It came up as one of my #roll100 selections this month, so maybe I‘ll actually read it once my hold comes through at the library.

A sad story about the aftermath of a terrible crime in what could otherwise be an idyllic small town. Martin brings summer in a small Midwestern town to life and handles his characters with sensitivity even though many, maybe most, of them are unlikeable.

“Ask anyone who was living in the middle of it all and they‘ll tell you: it didn‘t have anything to do with good and evil; it was all about love.”

“All right, now,” Junior said. “Here‘s what I want. I want to know what you‘ve done with my daughter.”
Raymond R. was trying to get his breath. “I swear, mister. It‘s like I‘ve done told you. I don‘t know.”
Junior held the Colt to the soft flesh under Raymond R.‘s chin. He drew back the hammer. “You better know,” he said.

Joke from page 78: A snail comes into a bar. The bartender takes one look at him and gives him a swift kick out the door. A year later, the snail comes back into the bar. “OK, wise guy,” he says to the bartender. “What was that all about?“

Starting this next! This author grew up in two tiny towns over from me. This is loosely based upon the actual murder of a young girl. Very interested to see what it‘s going to be like.

I liked this much better than Break the Skin.
