The Barrens


Dogwood Press is proud to sell only author signed copies of our titles!

For the past twenty years Edgar Award nominee John M. Floyd has been one of the most widely published short-story writers in America, and is known for putting Hitchcockian twists into every story he writes. This time he gives us thirty tales that have one more thing in common: all of them fit firmly into the mystery/crime/suspense genre.

Most of the stories in this seventh collection of his short fiction are set in the steamy South, and six are installments in his popular “Law and Daughter” series, starring Sheriff Lucy Valentine and her sleuthing mother Fran. Like his previous books–Rainbow’s End, Midnight, Clockwork, Deception, Fifty Mysteries, and Dreamland—the adventures here are full of quirky characters, edge-of-your-seat tension, and (maybe most important of all) plenty of plot reversals and surprises.

Welcome to The Barrens. Proceed with caution . . .
