Synopsis

Retired Toronto detective Charlie McKelvey runs from a cancer diagnosis and the violent memories of the big city and retreats to his hometown. A small declining mining centre, Ste. Bernadette offers McKelvey a chance to resolve old family issues, including his fathers involvement in a deadly wildcat strike in the late 1950s.



When the local police force enlists his help in tracing an upswing in youth violence and vandalism, McKelvey stumbles into the hornets nest of a crystal meth industry. The timing couldnt be worse for the town to expose its drug problem to the world: the mayor is hoping a new transmission line will be built through the town, bringing power line jobs and construction dollars; the police chief is trying to close a deal to truck Detroits garbage to a local site as well as vie for the mayors job; and a sleazy businessman is attempting to buy up the towns land to open a casino and resort.



Despite searches and seizures, the flow of drugs continues, leading McKelvey to suspect a local is manufacturing the drug. The Devils Dust holds a magnifying glass to the current decline of rural life, the scourge of meth, and what happens when an entire town loses faith.

I thought this series was well written in all three of his books you really grasp and start to build a relationship with Charlie that seem to..............for me grow and you really support and rally for this guy. I would highly recommend this book. But please do yourself a favor and read all three.
