Be aware! Go anywhere near Gae-Lynn Woods’ debut novel and you will be sucked in and spun around amongst the goings-on in Forney County until you’ve read every word of it. This is a work of crime fiction which stands right up there amongst the best. The writing is so effective that even this reader’s overbearing sense of editorship was cast aside and I found myself carried along by the story, the wonderful characters, the riveting sense of place and the real trauma of a community in crisis. Cass Elliot and Mitch Stone make great detective partners. The supporting cast of law-enforcers, law-breakers and members of the close-knit community all come to life in the midst of Woods’ assured prose. There is plenty of evil about in Forney and plenty of good to combat it. Criminal investigation, crisis, violent action and the normal intercourse of ordinary people are all handled with aplomb. There is no sense of stepping back from the often gruesome, sexually disturbing and manipulative nature of the events which have been secretly enacted over generations and now explode into the present. A truly excellent work of fiction. My only complaint is that I now want to know what happens next. Where is the sequel, Ms Woods?
