I first read Chiefs decades ago, before I was published myself. It has proven to be one of the books that has most influenced my writing. Chiefs begins early in the twentieth century and follows the careers of three police chiefs in a small Georgia town.

The stories of the chiefs are intensely personal, incredibly compelling, and give insight into how small towns work. There is an overarching story of a serial killer that begins early in Will Henry Lee’s days and isn’t solved until the well into the third chief’s time of duty. It’s shocking and will keep you on your toes.

The chiefs themselves aren’t always what you might expect and that’s one of the reasons I consider this a great novel. This epic is laden with detail that enriches the story. I just reread it and t is as absolutely riveting as it was the first time through.

Witty, enthralling, and very, very spooky, UNDER THE LAKE was a much-needed breath of fresh air. It’s got ghosts, crime, action, drama, and lots of good twisted history. Highly recommended!
