Bad Moon Rising: A Bad Axe County Novel (3)

We rated this book:


Sammy is a troubled youth who is currently living a nomadic existence, wandering far from home, surviving on leftovers, trash, and whatever spare change he can pick up. He is haunted by a lost love as well as voices in his head dictating aggressive actions. He is about to become one of the litany of problems facing Bad Axe County Sheriff Heidi Kick. Sheriff Kick juggles motherhood and her bailiwick of Bad Axe County. She is facing a heated election campaign involving a privileged son of wealth and influence. Heidi has domestic dilemmas. Her son Taylor has been acting out, her husband Harley travels to play baseball, and Heidi might just be pregnant. Now, she’s hearing about local homeless people disappearing and foul play being a factor. A body has been found, and shortly thereafter, her investigation takes an unexpected turn.

Bad Moon Rising is the latest in John Galligan’s highly entertaining Bad Axe County series. Sheriff Kick remains a character worth backing from start to finish; her fortitude and intelligence mark her as a powerful adversary to any criminal she stares down. Galligan succeeds in his latest mystery on all counts.
