"A fascinating study of the damage dark secrets can do to an individual, a family and a community. At the same time, there is a lot of gentlehumor...and two unusual but thoroughly engaging protagonists...not onlyan excellent crime novel but also a story of redemption." - CarolWestron, mysterypeople.co.uk

Nancy Swing's writing reflects her understanding of the cultures depicted in her stories. (Laos in "Malice on the Mekong" and now West Virginia in "Child's Play"). A single mother striving just to make ends meet doesn't have the luxury of being a helicopter parent. Thirteen-year-old Eden eats beans and spaghetti from the can, washed down with Coke. Her mother's erratic working hours and the lack of paid sick days contribute to Eden being somewhat of a "free range kid"---which is not necessarily that bad of a thing! Circumstances in the trailer park are depicted realistically--for instance, the irritation of the noise of window air conditioners in close quarters--but the author is never judgmental.
I'm waiting for her next book with bated breath!
