New from Down & Out Books: DRY BONES by G. Miki Hayden

S For Story/10625182
TAMPA, Fla. - s4story -- Down & Out Books is pleased to announce that DRY BONES by G. Miki Hayden has been published on May 13, 2024 in trade paperback and ebook formats.


Holder (Oklahoma) Senior Police Officer Aaron Clement is the sole cold case detective for the department, and he cares, particularly since the two skeletons in his office are those of young teen boys. But, in the meantime, a man has been knifed to death in the suburbs. Was this a home invasion, or something more personal than that? And what about the women who are disappearing?… Then one reappears...

Dry Bones is a tightly packed, emotionally laden police procedural that probes the past of a once corrupt police department, the result of a different time in policing and of a time today that requires more than mere good practices. The heat and dryness of the summer threatens to burn down Clement's house and the heat of human passions ignite both the worst and best in the citizens of Holder and those who are sworn to protect people from harm.

Advance praise for DRY BONES …

"Holder, Oklahoma Senior Police Officer Aaron Clement is out for justice above all, even if he irritates the local hierarchy. Hayden in Dry Bones gives us nothing-barred investigation and plenty of nitty gritty police procedure—which makes for a real page turner." —Marianna Ramondetta, author of The Barber from Palermo

"Dry Bones: flawlessly presented and deeply moving, a smart and compassionate cop deals with cases in his own way. Hayden, in her inimitable style, has provided us with another character that we will not forget!" —Pam Brown, author of Statue of Death and Mission of Death in the California Lighthouse Mystery Series
