Curtis LeBlanc: Sunsetter

It’s the Sunsetter Rodeo and Dallan and Brooks are ready for a good time. A stick of gum wrapped in money gets them two pills at one of the booths.

Soon after Brooks is dead and Dallan is reeling from the loss of his best friend.

Hannah can’t wait to get to the rodeo fair. It’s been a year since she’s seen the boy she’s in love with. They’ve made a plan and it’s time to put it in action.

Deputy Arnason has been tasked with keeping his eye on things since the drug over dose. It’s bad for business, particularly corrupt police department business.

That’s the bare bones of things as Sunsetter is a novel of solid prose and memorable characters.

The story brings you into the heart of a small town and the drug crisis that is destroying it, along with its youth.

Part crime fiction, part literary read, it’s an engaging book and well worth the time for this slow burn to full momentum.

  2. A rodeo is an interesting context for a story, June. And it sounds as though all of these characters are interesting and worth getting to know better. And as for ‘slow burn?’ Sometimes that works very, very well. Glad you enjoyed this.
