The story of an accidental sheriff.

It’s hard to pigeonhole, but it’s a noir. An interesting and atmospheric take on Sarah Jane Pullman’s hard life journey from poverty to runaway to the Gulf War to de facto sheriff of a small town and beyond. There is something of a mystery to the story in trying to figure out what happened to her predecessor. There aren’t many answers, but the questions are good and the characters are compelling. A quick and enjoyable read if you like a gritty tale that moves along briskly.
