In the summer of 1951, Elmhurst, Ohio was shocked when the small town's war hero police chief, Lester Smeal, was killed putting an end to the bloody rampage of a rogue cop. It was the last violent act in a chain of events that began with the discovery of the body of Wanda Jean Reider, a beautiful young woman from the wrong side of the tracks. Fifteen years later the chief's son and daughter, and the sister of the murdered woman, are young adults, each living with the legacy of the past as they try to make their own way in a world torn by war and social change. Nick Russell, New York Times bestselling author of the Big Lake mystery series, weaves a tale of intrigue, lust, and betrayal that you will remember long after you finish the last page. One early reviewer said of Dog's Run, "It's gut-wrenching, fast-paced, sometimes crude, brutally honest, and often sad. It is also Nick Russell's finest writing to date. Well done!" Return to Dog's Run continues in the same tradition.
