Dwight McAran is getting out of jail. The town bad boy no one wants him on the street. He's been in jail, but unlike most, is not broken. In fact, he's more than ready to get even. Detective Fenn is challenged with keeping tabs on him. A tricky situation - especially since he's Fenn's brother in law. Faced with trying to keep the sociopath Dwight out of trouble, for the good of the town and in order to save his marriage, the future of the town depends on Fenn's skill. The relationships between Fenn and his wife is beautiful, pure and timeless, a marriage we all should strive for, juxtaposed with Fenn's adversarial and confrontational relationship with Dwight, as well as the motherly relationship Fenn's wife Meg has with Dwight are the real gems of the book.
I'm sure everyone is well aware of the 'Creepy Clown' phenomena, which I wish would just end. It's making life difficult for everyone. Nice clowns (of which I know one) are suffering. They are losing work. And while they don't necessarily make computers or discover the next planet, they make people's lives happy and a bit more liveable.
