Fateful Mornings

(2017)
(The second book in the Henry Farrell series)
A novel by

 
A woman's chilling disappearance haunts a rural Pennsylvania county in the eagerly awaited new Henry Farrell mystery from the Edgar Award-winning author of Dry Bones in the Valley. Tom Bouman's Dry Bones in the Valley won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel and a Los Angeles Times Book Prize. The New York Times hailed it as "beautifully written," and the Washington Post called it a "mesmerizing and often terrifying story." In Wild Thyme, Pennsylvania, summer has brought Officer Henry Farrell nothing but trouble. Heroin has arrived with a surge in burglaries and other crime. When local carpenter Kevin O'Keeffe admits that he shot a man and that his girlfriend, Penny, is missing, the search leads the small-town cop to an industrial vice district across state lines that has already ensnared more than one of his neighbors. With the patience of a hunter, Farrell ventures into a world of shadow beyond the fields and forests of home.

Genre: Mystery    

"Tom Bouman is my new favorite mystery writer." - Nickolas Butler

"You would be hard-pressed to find a finer new series than Tom Bouman’s Henry Farrell novels because of the complexity of the plots or the richness of the characters, but what it really comes down to is just damn good writing." - Craig Johnson

"My father always said that you can judge people by the way they keep their tools: clean and sharp or soiled and soft. Tom Bouman's tools -- the words he uses to make Fateful Mornings -- cut straight and true, in this riveting mystery about a good man caught in the ruined Eden of rural America." - Julia Keller

"Fateful Mornings is that long-sought-after gem, the place where the literary meets the crime novel in beautiful symmetry. Henry Farrell is an existential everyman, as clueless as the rest of us about life’s meaning, and his so very human stumbling in search of the elusive truths is one of the many beauties of this fine novel." - William Kent Krueger

"A terrific writer. Definitely one to keep an eye on." - Dennis Lehane

"More than a mystery, Fateful Mornings is a portrait of the rusted pocket of Northeastern Pennsylvania that Henry Farrell calls home. Bouman's tender portrait of a widower remaking his life infuses his crime fiction with a level of intimacy that is both rare and winning. I was happy to ride shotgun with Henry Farrell again." - Attica Locke

"Fateful Mornings is a haunting dissection of the broken heart of America." - Val McDermid
