"You would be hard-pressed to find a finer new series than Tom Bouman's Henry Farrell novels because of the complexity of the plots or the richness of the characters, but what it really comes down to is just damn good writing." -Craig Johnson

"Bouman’s lyrical descriptions...are so good they give you goosebumps"

When his colleagues try to arrest Farrell for the murder of his ex-lover he is forced to go on the run. Tom Bouman’s lyrical descriptions of rural Pennsylvania, and the violent confrontations that take place there, are so good they give you goosebumps. The Bramble and the Rose is Farrell’s third outing after Dry Bones in the Valley (2015) and Fateful Mornings (2017). It is as brilliant — if not better — than both.
