At the center of Pearson's third thriller featuring Sun Valley, Idaho sheriff Walt Fleming is a plot to steal rare wine bottles in the middle of an auction. There's more to the theft than meets the eye, and when the crooks' getaway plan goes awry, it's impossible to guess what happens next. Maintaining suspense in a multi-viewpoint thriller is no small feat. The mix of perspectives has to be just right.
Killer Summer succeeds as a high-stakes thriller in a small town, a page-turner with heart and human interest. In stores June 30.
