After facing Death himself and banishing a reaper bent on the destruction of Sheriff's deputy Boyd Davies, Hallie Michaels had hoped things would finally settle down; that she and Boyd would find more time to spend together, and that the ghosts she attracts would stay in the cemeteries where they belong.But on a wintry night in mid-December, a woman is murdered with a high-powered rifle. Not long after, another of West Prairie City's citizens is killed in exactly the same way, drawing the attention of state investigators. But the connection between the victims is not easily uncovered.Meanwhile, Hallie finds a note tied to post outside her home. ""What do you fear most?"" it asks, accompanied by a set of map coordinates. Over the next few days she receives an anonymous phone call, and a letter left for Hallie at the local ag supply. All pose the same question and offer the same set of coordinates. The mystery deepens, and Hallie must solve it before the body count rises again, in "Strange Country "by Deborah more

Review quote

Magic blows through Deborah Coates' "Wide Open" like the violent thunderstorms of the high plains. This contemporary fantasy is the very best of its genre, from its cinematic landscape, to the compelling twists of the plot, to the building relationships between characters that leap off the page to live in the imagination. Very, very highly recommended. The best contemporary fantasy you'll read this year.--Sarah Prineas, author of The Magic Thief, on Wide Openshow more
