At first glance, the northeast Mississippi town of Oakdale seems like a quaint little place, but something brewing deep in the woods is making a lot of money for some very powerful people. When the youngest son of one a fine Oakdale family goes missing, Smart County Sheriff Robert Glass puts out an all-points bulletin and launches a search. Then Glass himself disappears. Set in 1984 and a prequel to the long-running Joe Lee suspense series, Resting Place introduces young Billy Joe Stone, a hard-charging deputy sheriff who vows to clean up what he understood from Glass is a vast web of corruption. But does Billy Joe know too much for his own good? Are the people close to him already in danger? And can they be trusted: the father of his best friend from high school, who works in law enforcement? The gossipy office manager at the office of the sheriff? The seemingly kind grandmother who has a key to the house belonging to the missing sheriff? And why does that college kid, Mark Myrick III, keep turning up in the middle of office investigations? A fast-paced, atmospheric tale of greed, power, loss, and redemption, Resting Place is full of heroes and villains who will stay with you long after you have turned the final page. You will almost smell the cheeseburgers cooking at the town hamburger stand, and the pot roast at the Oakdale Café is to die for. But in a town loaded with old money and skeletons in most every closet, no secret is ever safe.
