The story is completely self contained and runs for one hundred and ninety six pages. And features strong language and adult situations, thus is strictly for adults only.
It's all about Joe Ullen. Who comes from a backwater town called Elohra. But who left that behind when he became a big ice hockey star. His career now ended by injury, he's forced to return to his hometown when his high school sweetheart dies. He hadn't seen her in years. But she named him executor of his will.
Elhora is the kind of place that offers few prospects other than dreams of escape and something better. There's a local indian reservation where people live lives of squalor and poverty. And one Indian lady who has made money from dubious means. But the town also has some dark secrets. As does Joe. And doing his duty as executor might bring all of them to light....
This has a plot with some decent twists and turns that should keep you hooked to the end. It's more thriller than mystery though because whilst Joe does work things out along the way there's not much in the way of clues for the reader.
It's strength rather lies in the characterisation and depiction of small town America. And it's very good in this respect, with a convincing depiction of life on the reservation. The narrative does have some lengthy flashback scenes as various things are filled in but these never disrupt the flow of it.
The characters are all good creations rather than great ones, but Joe is a fairly appealing lead as he tries to find the truth. And all in all it's a decent read. Not a standout entry in this range, but a pretty good one. But what really does stand out is the art, which is clear and eye catching and very good indeed.
