Rain Gods Paperback / softback
Part of the Hackberry Holland series
One of the greatest American crime writers is back with Hackberry Holland: a sheriff with a haunted past on the hunt for a deranged killer. Hackberry Holland is a man haunted by a chequered and traumatic past.
A former POW from the Korean War, he has left everything behind to become sheriff of a dried-out, broken-down border town in south Texas.
But Hack soon finds himself dealing with more than just his own demons when nine dead prostitutes are dug up behind a run-down church.
The search for justice - and revenge - pits Hack against hired guns, drug dealers who operate on both sides of the border, and a psychotic killer known as The Preacher.
