For fans of Tana French and Liz Moore comes a brilliant and gripping debut crime novel set in rural Iowa, introducing Sergeant Riley Fisher.
Some things don't stay buried.
It starts with a body—a young woman found dead in an Iowa cornfield, on one of the few family farms still managing to compete with the giants of Big Agriculture.
When Sergeant Riley Fisher, newly promoted to head of investigations for the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office, arrives on the scene, an already horrific crime becomes personal when she discovers the victim was a childhood friend, connected to a dark past she thought she’d left behind.
The investigation grows complicated as more victims are found. Drawn deeper in, Riley soon discovers implications far beyond her Midwest town.
Beautifully written and masterfully crafted, The Fields is a dynamite debut—crime fiction at its very finest.
