The Killing Hills, by Chris Offutt (No Exit Press, 2021)

A military investigator returns home to face his estranged wife, and to help his sister catch a killer. Terrific austere thriller – first in a new series – strong on lean characterizations and small-town Kentucky working-class troubles. Plenty for genre fans to get their teeth into: like a Jack Reacher novel written by James Sallis. Highly recommended.


My own books are here, if that’s your thing. Newest is noir thriller East of England.
