Bent Road by Lori Roy, 352 pages

"Bent Road" is the Downtown Library's September book club book.  The book won an Edgar Award for best first novel.

Set in western Kansas in the late 1960's, a family has migrated from Detroit back to the father's hometown in Kansas because of the race riots.  Returning to Kansas is not all happiness and roses.  There is domestic abuse, missing children and maybe convicts on the loose.

It was suspenseful, dark and depressing.  Frankly, not my cup of tea.
