Monday, August 27, 2018

Drugs are rampant in this country and has been for a while. What some don't realize this is also hitting small towns and villages.

In this fictitious novel small farmers are giving up farming and turning to processing drugs. They need the money--but once in the drug lord won't let them out. This is what happens to Paula James father. Paula had taken a leave from her journalism job to try and help him get over the loss of her mother. The story begins with Paula having to escape their burning house with her tiny dog. She goes back in and finds that her father is dead-a gunshot trough his head.

On the run Paula calls her long time friend to help her get to the bottom of all this and try to clean up her hometown. The two investigative journalists get more then they bargained for--much more.

Definitely a novel I enjoyed reading--just hope that fiction does not turn into fact!!
