A BILL MAYTUBBY & HANNAH BOND MYSTERY
In a driving sleet storm, a farmer has discovered a body snagged on cottonwood roots in the Washita River. Johnston County deputy Hannah Bond realizes it's her elderly friend, Alice. Meanwhile, at the Golden Play Casino, robbers posing as armored-car guards kill a local stickball hero and friend of Chickasaw Lighthorse Police detective Bill Maytubby. The trail leads through the quarry-scarred Oklahoma badlands to a remote airstrip and a planeload of drugs and untraceable automatic weapons. Also somehow connected are a shady coin-op vending company; a neo-Nazi compound outside Paris, Texas; and a headless janitor in a train-mangled van. As the net tightens, the smugglers get wind of their pursuers and converge on Maytubby and Bond at Greasy Bend Bridge.
A Note From the Publisher
PRAISE FOR GREASY BEND
"This series is a sleeper, well deserving of a larger readership."
"Set in the Oklahoma countryside, where it's possible to track a car by the cloud of dust it's raising on a gravel road, Lackey's excellent sequel to 2017's Nail's Crossing charts the investigations of two different but equally able cops....This one's definitely a keeper."
-Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"Mesmerizing. Kris Lackey's prose is a siren song that worms its way into your soul. This story hooks you in the first chapter and never lets you go. Prepare to be up late reading-and loving every minute of it."
-William Bernhardt, bestselling author of the Ben Kincaid series
"Kris Lackey's latest is razor sharp and beautifully renders its Oklahoma setting, the rugged contours of the Chickasaw Nation few ever get to see. Tribal detective Bill Maytubby and county deputy Hannah Bond are wonderful characters, tenacious and savvy investigators who are easy to root for and hard to forget, a pair I can't wait to follow into the hills again."
-J. Todd Scott, author of High White Sun and This Side of Night
PRAISE FOR NAIL'S CROSSING
"You're going to want more of tribal Lighthorse Policeman Bill Maytubby and Deputy Hannah Bond."
-Craig Johnson, New York Times bestselling author of the Longmire series
"Lackey brings to vivid life a unique and fascinating part of the country."
-Lou Berney, Edgar Award-winning author of The Long and Faraway Gone
