Summary
"In Darkness Bids the Dead Goodbye Sheriff Pruitt, Deadhead, is at it again, keeping Elkhorn safe from meth makers and murderers while he tries to contend with the psychic maelstrom of his impending father- and grandfatherhood and stay strong for his pregnant wife, pregnant daughter, and his daughter's unsteady boyfriend. McKinney unfolds this murder mystery like a tie-dye shirt preserved in a dime bag recovered from time warp, the mysteries of who killed Wilma Gillespie woven together with this mystery: when did we all get so old that we started burying the icons of our youth? And what is left for us? Plenty -- if you take a ride with Sheriff Pruit in his cruiser. The narrative captures a compelling mix of small town folksiness and underworld grit, vivid characters in all their idiosyncratic neuroses and fragile humanity -- criminals and victims, cops honest and corrupt, witnesses helpful and not, along with nosey neighbors and enigmatic ex-lovers
