Winter's Malice: A Black Hills Mystery Kindle Edition
Three bodies in the span of twenty-four hours...
It's the dead of winter, and in Weeping Rock, South Dakota—a small town crippled by racism, drugs, and violence—Sheriff’s Deputy Liam Matthews has his work cut out for him when he steps in to take over the duties of sheriff from his father, who for far too long has turned a blind eye to certain crimes for what he says is the overall good of the town.
Coming under scrutiny for hiring a Lakota to fill his position as deputy, things quickly go from bad to worse for Liam when the body of retired pro-baseball player Hector Ramirez, who had recently returned home to coach ball at his high school alma mater, is found floating in Crow’s Foot Lake. Hector’s bludgeoned corpse is no sooner on its way to the M.E.’s office in Rapid City, however, when the partially clothed body of a young girl is discovered in a clearing in the snow.
With two seemingly unrelated murders, Liam is judged at every turn of his investigation by the local population, Hector’s reality TV star wife Kiki Grey, and his own father. Upon uncovering a tangled web of desperation, lies, and greed, the mounting pressure inside Liam to do the right thing becomes jaded when the skeletal remains of a third victim is found in a submerged car, bringing to the forefront a long-buried secret of his own—and threatening his already troubled marriage to his wife—as his past and present collide.

The mystery part was just that and the surprise ending as well!!
But if you’re looking for a story centered on crime-solving (as I am), you may be disappointed. There are enough crimes, but they’re not the focus of the book, and their resolution is not as intriguing as I hoped.
Liam Mathews is a great character, and I rooted for him the entire time. As far as I’m concerned, he’s by far the best “thing” in the book. But don’t imagine he’s some perfect guy (although the physical description is a bit cliche). He has flaws, but he also has qualities that match them.
The ending was satisfying, the book finishing in a way that gave me closure. There was a particular suspense moment at the end that was nicely executed. (less)
