The man has been unmasked, but the fun continues. Hartley GoodWeather is indeed award-winning, bestselling writer Thomas King. A born trickster and now newly minted master of the comic mystery novel, King has penned what will be the first in a series of Thumps DreadfulWater novels.

Who is Thumps DreadfulWater, and just why does he show up? DreadfulWater is the unlikely Cherokee ex-cop who's trying to make a living as a photographer in the small townof Chinook, somewhere in the northwestern United States. But only he doesn't count on snapping shots of a dead body languishing in the just-completed luxury condo resort built by the local Indian band.

Smart and savvy, blessed with a killer dry wit and a penchant for self-deprecating humor, DreadfulWater isn't sure that he can shed his California cop skin. Soon entangled in a mystery that involves a smart-ass teenage anti-condo protester and a cast of characters as weird and wonderful as his own enigmatic personality, DreadfulWater has his work cut out for him.

A novel that will appeal to mystery fans as well as Thomas King's loyal audience, DreadfulWater Shows Up is a catchy, clever read.
