On the Arkansas-Louisiana-Texas border, Detective Jim Beaudry Bonham has been assigned a bewildering case: a woman has been brutally attacked and nailed to a cross on the outskirts of town the day after a devastating storm unnerves the community. Bonham recognizes her immediately as Dr. Deborah Gold, the town's well-known psychologist. Sensing how many secrets Dr. Gold took to her grave, Bonham's field of suspects grows to include the culture of the town itself--multiplying the questions that might explain how and why such a gruesome murder could be committed.

With the participation of complex, fully realized characters, Blackbird is not only a commanding crime novel: it is also an exploration of small-town life and how it's affected by violence and savagery. Wright's incisive description of the setting and characters perfectly juxtaposes the unknowns surrounding the murder, making Blackbird a memorable addition to the crime canon.
