Cold Skies: A DreadfulWater Mystery Kindle Edition
From the award-winning and #1 bestselling author of Sufferance and Indians on Vacation
When a body is found in an airport rental car, Thumps DreadfulWater learns that the deceased was developing a revolutionary technology. The technology is new, but could it be so valuable that someone would kill for it?
Thumps DreadfulWater has finally found some peace and quiet. His past as a California cop now far behind him, he’s living out his retirement as a fine-arts photographer in the small town of Chinook. His health isn’t great, and he could use a new stove, but as long as he’s got his cat and a halfway decent plate of eggs, life is good.
All of that changes when a body turns up on the eve of a major water conference and the understaffed sheriff’s department turns to Thumps for help. Thumps wants none of it, but even he is intrigued when he learns that the deceased was developing a new technology that could revolutionize water and oil drilling . . . and that could also lose some very powerful people a lot of money. As strangers begin to pour into Chinook for the conference, Thumps finds himself sinking deeper and deeper into a conflict between secretive players who will not hesitate to kill to get what they want.

“Wry wit, clever writing, amusing characters. . . . [Readers] are going to love sharing this adventure with Thumps DreadfulWater.” -- Tony Hillerman --This text refers to the paperback edition.
