Fateful Mornings (2017)
(Henry Farrell, book 2)
Tom Bouman
"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."
