REVIEW: Rough Country

When a young girl turns up murdered with a strange symbol carved into her, the police department has no idea what their about to uncover. Investigator Reed Raleigh is a veteran with PTSD, his life is kind of a mess but it turns out he is just what this case needs. Turns out quite a few people in this town have hidden second lives and that dead girl was just a small break in the dam of deviance and violence Reed is about to uncover.

I love a gritty cop drama. Reed is a great protagonist and this little town is full of unusual characters. I liked the turn this one took and how in depth of a view we got of what the town was really up to. Definitely not a thriller but rather a solid police procedural with a complex mystery at its core. I’d definitely read another story set in this town with Reed investigating

I did this one on audio and the narrator’s performance was great for this style of novel. It gave me a bit of a podcasty feel that kept me wanting to listen.

Thanks to Dreamscape Media for access to the audiobook via Netgalley. All opinions above are my own.
