SOON IN AUDIO FORMAT! A small-town deputy sheriff tracks a serial killer through the shocking, factual events surrounding the Scopes trial of 1925. Mystery and history combine to produce an entertaining, thought provoking, stimulating work.

When an old recluse dies behind locked doors, the doctor says it was her heart. Deputy Sheriff Trent Tyson doesn't give the case another thought until the medical examiner finds poison. Within a week Tyson is on the tenuous trail of a murderer who snuffs out the unwanted, the lame, the helpless. Reaping the Whirlwind also reveals the actual truth about an innocent man on trial and a small town's quest for publicity that altered the course of a nation. Excerpt
Prologue I like to think of myself as a gardener. A gardener loves flowers. If he must root out a misshapen plant or snip off a dead head, that doesn’t mean he loves his beautiful blossoms less. It means he’s a tidy gardener. He’s doing the landscape a favor. No one can blame him.

Professional Reviews

History Expert
"Rosey Dow has been painstaking in her research and meticulous in her attempts at historical accuracy. Mystery buffs will find a full plate in this book: love affairs, intrigue, murder, and intellectual controversy--all portrayed against an accurate geographical backdrop with historical personages mingling with fictional characters. The result is that this book is an enjoyable means of learning about one of the world's great trials." --Dr. Richard Cornelius Scopes Trial specialist Bryan College

Diana Kirk, best-selling author
If you love colorful historical characters and a good mystery, you will love this intriguing and intellectually stimulating work"

Charlotte Austin Review
In Reaping the Whirlwind, Dow has taken what might have been dry, historical facts and woven them into a tale of intrigue and obsession. Under her capable pen, gray areas become clearly defined, while dark, consistent lines become blurred and change shape as the wind blows. The characters, while obviously living in another day and time, are pleasant to observe and suspects abound, keeping readers guessing. An excellent and surprising first!
