Mick Harden, newly retired from the military, is back in Rocksalt, Kentucky. While his sister, the town’s sheriff, is recovering from a gunshot wound, Mick, a former CID investigator, is deputized in order to solve the case on which she was working, and to find out who shot his sister.
CODE OF THE HILLS is the third in the series. The first book of the series was wonderful and unique, and the second book was very good. Sadly, this book falls off. The plot meanders and just doesn’t have the same capacity to make one want to read it straight through. One may find themselves somewhat ambiguous about the final resolution. This book was good, but may not want to make one run out and buy the next book.
CODE OF THE HILLS (PolProc-Mick Harden-Kentucky-Contemp) – Good
