Blood of the Poppy paperback.JPG

Sinclair County, Ohio has fallen on hard times. Some residents choose to ease their sorrows with opium, erroneously believing it is less addictive than heroin, while others of a more agricultural bent chase their fortune growing poppies to serve the demand. When librarian Whitney Zwick sets out to discover what happened to eight of her family members murdered during a one-night rampage, she ends up uncovering more about this unsavory industry than is wise or safe. Blood of the Poppy should fit nicely on your bookshelf right between Elmore Leonard's Justified series and the novels of Carl Hiaasen.
