"Cruel Cuts," the second in the Sticks Hetrick mystery series, has been garnering some good reviews since its release in November by Whiskey Creek Press.
“Combining the threads of a disturbing mystery, domestic violence and at least two potential romances, this second novel in the series from author J. R. Lindermuth weaves a complex and very enjoyable cozy read full of murder, deceit and greed. Along the way he provides a revealing glimpse into a small town with characters just as real as your neighbors next door.”—Kevin Tipple, Crime and Suspense magazine (www.crimeandsuspense.com)
“Lindermuth develops a plot slowly, pulling the reader into the story as if they were one of the characters, building the tension as the investigators work to unravel the problem which continues to mount. I’m happy to highly recommend this tale as one that will please any mystery buff and have you looking for his other books. Enjoy. I sure did.”—Anne K. Edwards, www.mysteryfiction.net
“Sticks Hetrick, retired police chief, returns in this second in the series. Retirees get no rest. He is called in to consult with the new chief who has considerably less experience. Animal mutilations, poison pen letters, lawyers, and the police all mix for a great read.”—Vero G. Caravette, Mysterical-E magazine (www.mystericale.com)
