Product description


“Even armchair sleuths who can see the solution from a mile away will appreciate GoodWeather’s unerring knack for converting social, racial, and economic conflict into blissful farce.” — Kirkus Reviews

“The characters are really clever. . . . The dialogue is crisp and just begs to head to the screen.” — The Globe and Mail

“Let’s hope that DreadfulWater shows up again and again.” — Books in Canada

“”The writing is feisty and fast . . . King is having fun here . . . Mark Twain was of the opinion that the truth was the funniest joke in the world. All good satire springs from that notion, and this book qualifies as such.” — The Globe and Mail

“Wry wit, clever writing, amusing characters. . . . [Readers] are going to love sharing this adventure with Thumps DreadfulWater.” — Tony Hillerman

“Whimsical and wry, large-hearted and at times laugh out loud funny, but with an underlying gravitas and significance.” — Quill & Quire
