The Wild Dead by Carrie Vaughn
Set in the future after wars and economic and social failures, this is a tale of what's left of humanity and how they deal with their problems. There are still some left with integrity.
John Joseph Adams/Mariner Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you). It will be published July 17th.
It started with an argument over restoring an historic home. It ended with murder. Teeg wants to walk away and leave it because it's out of their jurisdiction. Enid wants to know why it happened. The answer is buried and no one wants to dig it up. She doesn't give up.
She ends up searching alone and almost dies. After days of questioning she gets her answer but it's not pleasant. Of course, neither is murder.
This is a warped look at how society protects itself and how your own self can unravel under pressure. It was an interesting read.
