Into The Web by Thomas H. Cook

Into the WebRoy Slater returns from teaching in California to his small hometown in West Virginia to be with his dad through his final days. Roy is pulled right back ‘into the web’ of events he left twenty years ago, murder, committed by his brother.

There is however much, much more to the story than that, and the author does a good job of pulling the reader into the town and the characters.

Roy’s father is an old codger of a guy, who seemingly has no appreciation for Roy’s intellect and education.

There is a bullying prior sheriff, and his son, the current bullying sheriff, lives in seeming ruin.

There is the woman Roy loved and planned to have a family with. Why did she tell Roy to not return for her? What really happened that night?

Some bits a little predictable, but always with a good twist as per Thomas H. Cook. Overall, a very good read.
