'As dug into the Kansas prairie as big bluestem grass, Plains Crazy gives us unforgettable characters and a story that deepens and widens like a slow-mo bomb that explodes for 300 pages.Fantastic!' -Mary Logue author of the Claire Watson mysteries 'As gothic as Faulkner, as amusing as Twain, it takes on religious extremism with stunning inventiveness and admirable wit in the midst of horror.' -John Orr, San Jose Mercury News Nothing ever happens in Benteen County, Kansas. Then, on a perfect spring morning, a member of the reality TV program filming in a local pasture is found dead with a Cheyenne arrow sticking out of his back. The natural suspect is Sheriff English's half brother, Mad Dog, the county oddball whose Amerind heritage has made him a born-again Cheyenne. Truly, murder is a bad way to start the day. Explosive action follows. Notes left for authorities hint at a terrorist assault on the heartland. If the sheriff, known as Englishman, doesn't have enough to worry about, his wife has begun acting strangely. She insists he fly off on a Paris holiday with her before sunset-or else. Meanwhile, Mad Dog swings between suspect and target as he encounters his long-lost high school sweetheart and a secret that may explain the mix of arrows and bombs raining down on Buffalo Springs. J.M. Hayes was born and raised on the flat earth of central Kansas where his novels take place. He graduated from Wichita State University and did three years of postgraduate work at the University of Arizona. He shares a home in Tucson, AZ with his wife, two computers, four thousand or so books, two German Shepherds, and a Scottish 'Terror.' www.jmhayes-author.com
