Publisher Description

". . . It’s wonderful to see Tapply get out of the city and into an altogether different kind of time that suits his unhurried storytelling perfectly."--Kirkus Reviews"Outstanding . . . electrifying . . . ingenious . . . one of the most convincingly heroic and likeable of contemporary sleuths."--Publishers Weekly"Tapply is . . . a worthy successor to Hammet and both MacDonalds (Ross and John)."--Chicago TribuneWilliam G. Tapply has created a fresh new world in Bitch Creek, a steamy, perfectly crafted mystery introducing Stoney Calhoun, an unlikely hero. Stoney is a man without a past. A tragic event has obliterated his memory and he has been given-as so many might like to receive-a chance to reinvent himself. That’s not an easy task when a man doesn’t knowanything about himself, except that he is smart and utterly self-reliant.Stoney is driven by a current from within. He has settled in Maine and has become a fishing guide, and he’s busy reeducating himself. He’s also in love, and he is slowly coming to terms with the sometimes ghostly glimpses of his past. Life is sweet, until someone close to him is murdered, and Stoney suspects that he himself was the intended target. In a riveting process of investigation and self-discovery, Stoney delves deep into the mysteries of the murder and begins, unwittingly, to uncover vital truths about himself.In Bitch Creek, Tapply has created a unique and intensely likeable protagonist. He has fashioned an ingenious plot that exquisitely unfolds along with simultaneous layers of personality and intrigue. With stunning surprises and dead-on dialogue, Bitch Creek will be hailed, along with Stoney Calhoun, as Tapply’s latest brilliant creation.
