2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: The Lies That Bind by Marshall Thornton (235-07-31-2016)

As always, a cracking good mystery steeped in thick atmosphere. The writing is clean and spare, and the characters, warts and all, are very genuine and true to life. Another wonderful installment in this excellent series.
