Vandamere Press is pleased to offer a new novel from New York Times Best-Selling author Patricia Hagan. Cry Me a River is a fast-paced, hard-hitting  novel of mystery and suspense set in the rural South in the turbulent 60's. Beginning with the ambush of Sheriff Luke Ballard on Halloween in the Hampton, Alabama town cemetery, Cry Me a River takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride through the sheriff's life and the town's  seamy underbelly. Small-town gossip, bootlegging, the KKK, high school romances, corruption, and greed all play their  role in this tightly-written, non-stop mystery.

In a series of flashbacks. Luke returns to Hampton for a last visit with his dying mother after serving in Special Forces. He  sees for the first time  the corruption, racism, and pettiness that have taken over his much-despised home town.  Despite serious misgivings, he allows himself to be talked into running for sheriff and wins. As his  past and the town's social and moral structure become clear to the reader, the mystery deepens, as the length of viable suspects grows. The complexity of small-town social structure, and the winds of change sweeping the country in the late 60's are starkly and thoroughly examined.  In the end, only Luke, aided by his handful of friends, can unravel what really happened. Patricia Hagan's numerous fans will be delighted with this new direction. A highly-readable and colorful novel not to be missed.
