Collected together for the first time, the seven stories in Crooked as a Dog's Hind Leg make up a new anthology of short stories set in and around Laura Fleming's own Byerly, North Carolina. The stories feature fan favorite characters such as Sue Randolph, Wynette Weston, Belva Tucker, and Byerly police chief Junior Norton, in addition to all the quirky aunts, uncles, and cousins that make up the extended Burnette family.
It includes two Laura Fleming stories, as well as the Agatha Award-nominated "The Death of Erik the Redneck" and the Anthony and Macavity awards--nominated "Bible Belt." Packed with the same smart, witty storytelling that's made the Laura Fleming mystery series a hit with readers and reviewers alike, -Crooked as a Dog's Hind Leg is a true Byerly homecoming.
