Shifty’s Boys, by Chris Offutt (No Exit Press, 2022)

Recuperating with family after combat injury, military cop Mick Hardin investigates the death of a drug dealer as a favour. The second Hardin thriller offers the same pleasures as the first: laconic Kentuckians, a sense of ordinary lives, a conspiracy. Plenty to relish: a third book is keenly awaited.


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