Walk A Crooked Mile
by Catherine Dain
Hired by her own mother to track down her errant father, Freddie O'Neal tails her dad's biker bodies and unearths murder, deceit, and deadly secrets along the way.
The story begins when Freddie's mother hires her to find the father who left them 16 years ago. Her search leads her to new friends and old murders. while evoking a wonderful sense of place throughout, from the comfortable, hometown ambiance of Reno to the glitzy cheapness of Las Vegas to the seemingly endless, barren beauty of the desert. The relationship between untidy, irreverent Freddie and her precise, style-conscious mother is well drawn with the conflicts and the love.
