Publisher Comments:

It was one hell of an inheritance for former Chicago reporter Tom Coleman: a broken-down pickup truck, ramshackle campground, a canoe livery — and one pot-smoking, barely working employee he doesn't need, doesn't want, and can't afford.

But the truth is, after losing a child and a marriage, Tom doesn't really care. And life is nice and quiet in the middle of nowhere. Until a drug lab blows up near his property — putting Tom in contact with the woman he once loved, a small-town cop with a chip on his shoulder, and a powerful local who doesn't want him poking his nose where it doesn't belong.

Tom doesn't want to get involved in the first place. But in the hardscrabble Nebraska Sandhills, storms gather suddenly and bad blood runs deep. Now a quiet summer on the river is turning into a dangerous season of grudges, betrayal, and violent reckoning — and it's already too late to find shelter...

Review:

"Doolittle's style is clipped, his dialogue terse, but the story is lifelike and nuanced. Rain Dogs will satisfy fans of hard-boiled fiction and classic noir, as well as any crime fans who don't like their plots tied up too tidily." Booklist

Review:

"A heart-stopping, gut-clenching, eye-opening, brain-tingling effort." Chicago Tribune

Review:

"Superb, suspenseful....A beautifully written work with idiosyncratic humor and a lot of heart." Wall Street Journal

Review:

"Lean and mean." Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"Sean Doolittle is a young writer with serious chops. With Rain Dogs he brings it strong." George Pelecanos, bestselling author of Drama City

Review:

"As long as there are writers like Sean Doolittle out there, American crime fiction has got a sterling future ahead of it. Rain Dogs is tense, evocative, and anchored by a main character, Tom Coleman, who I'd love to see more of. A terrific novel." Dennis Lehane, New York Times bestselling author of Mystic River and Shutter Island

Synopsis:

Called "a terrific novel" by Dennis Lehane ("Mystic River"), this sharp-witted, rural crime novel tells the story of a former reporter who is trying to get away from it all and ends up on the wrong end of a police investigation. Original.
