The Sweet Goodbye

(The first book in the Danny Barrett series)
A novel by

In this thrilling new series from Edgar®-nominated author Ron Corbett, the most dangerous predator in the Maine wilderness walks on two feet—and it is Danny Barrett's job to bring him down.

Something is not right in the North Maine Woods.
A small family-run lumber company should not have more than two hundred million unaccountable dollars on their books. Money like that comes from moving something other than wood across the border. 

The first agent the FBI sent undercover was their best man—sure to get the answers that were needed. He was dead within a month. 
Now, Danny Barrett is taking his place. Before he was a cop, Danny grew up in the woods of Northern Michigan. He is the only chance the feds have of getting answers, but how many more will have to die first?

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"Small town secrets and big time corruption. The Sweet Goodbye is a throwback to the days of moody, flawed heroes and fun, complex bad guys. Compelling classic noir that plays out in a forgotten America." - Ace Atkins

"Like a marvelous piece of north country wood, The Sweet Goodbye has a luxurious grain and finish--not to say that Ron Corbett's debut novel of FBI Agent Danny Barrett doesn't have its share of warp and twists. This is the plank that's going to set the platform for one fine crime series." - Craig Johnson
