Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Already suffering the privations of the 1930s Dust Bowl, an Oklahoma town is further devastated when a passenger train derails-flooding its hospital with the dead and maimed. Among the seriously wounded is Etha, wife of Sheriff Temple Jennings. Overwhelmed by worry for her, the sheriff must regain his footing to investigate the derailment, which rapidly develops into a case of sabotage. The following night, a local recluse is murdered. Temple has a hunch that this death is connected to the train wreck. But as he dissects the victim's life with help from the recuperating and resourceful Etha, he discovers a tangle of records that make a number of townsfolk suspects in the murder. Temple's investigations take place against the backdrop of the Great Depression-where bootlegging, petty extortion, courage, and bravado play out in equal measure"-- Provided by publisher.
