    One thought on “Three Bad Years”

    1. This one nails small town culture in Mississippi s Delta country It shines a light on race relations the ones behind the fa ade It reminds of Grisham but is grittier It provides characters and circumstances into which you are compelled to sink your teeth The palpable human drama and the steamy sense of place make the journey a pleasure This was the second novel I ve read from the Henry s Thank goodness they have several waiting for my enjoyment.

    2. I really enjoyed this one was a quick read with some very true dynamics of the South Very few mystery novels actually succeed in getting me to the end without figuring out everything, and I can say I just about made it the whole way through without figuring out everything That s a good thing I can t wait to read Willie Mitchell, starting the second one today
