Description

From the award-winning and #1 bestselling author of The Back of the Turtle; Green Grass, Running Water and The Inconvenient Indian

Thumps DreadfulWater’s world is turned upside down when Nina Maslow, the producer of a true-crime reality-TV show, turns up dead after working on a cold case that Thumps has spent years trying to forget. What’s more, someone seems set on taunting Thumps, leaving reminders of the Obsidian murder case around town. Is it possible that the elusive serial killer who murdered his girlfriend and her daughter all those years ago has resurfaced in Chinook? Or is this the work of a copycat looking to mess with Thumps by stirring up memories from his past?

Dragged back into a case that has haunted him for years, Thumps DreadfulWater is determined to solve the mystery of the Obsidian murders. But as he works the case, he begins to realize just how dangerous the person he is dealing with isand that he might be the next target.

Thumps DreadfulWater, the sly, wry, reluctant investigator of Cold Skies and A Matter of Malice, returns in another irresistible mystery that only Thomas King could create.

Editorial Reviews

“Thankfully, unlike most writers, King actually is funny when he intends to be.”

— Globe and Mail (Toronto)

“King’s books are filled with mischief and sly humour, but his words always manage to reveal some hidden truth about life which makes you look at the world in a slightly different way than you did prior to reading his work. Even his mystery stories are more than what they look like on the surface and Obsidian is no exception.” 

— Blogcritics.org

“King’s Thumps Dreadfulwater is a marvelous character . . . any of King’s Dreadfulwater novels will take you right out of your reading chair and into the action.”

— Globe and Mail (Toronto)
