A NovelBook - 2014
A once blue-collar town, Peacefield has surrendered to the illusion of affluence. But for some, the newcomers and their wealth are not welcome. Tension and division are a way of life. One night, the otherwise bucolic town explodes with gunfire. Hostages are taken and the local police department, hampered by budget cuts, is caught flat-footed. Constables Grant Ambler and Arnold Strauss are both new to the department, and stuck in the orbit of their troubled personal lives as they walk, unaware, into the ensuing mayhem. In a single evening, Peacefield is transformed from a quaint tourist trap into a violent and unpredictable nightmare, where lives are shattered, faith is renewed, and long-concealed mysteries are solved.
