Happy Tuesday. Today we celebrate author Arthur Herbert and his award-winning novel, published by Stitched Smile Publications in February of this year.
The Bones of Amoret by Arthur Herbert has won the NYC Big Book Award for Best Overall Western Fiction Novel. Join us in congratulating Arthur and check out this fantastic novel.
Amoret, Texas, 1982. Life along the border is harsh, but in a world where cultures work together to carve a living from the desert landscape, Blaine Beckett lives a life of isolation. A transplanted Boston intellectual, for twenty years locals have viewed him as a snob, a misanthrope, an outsider. He seems content to stand apart until one night when he vanishes into thin air amid signs of foul play.
Noah Grady, the town doctor, is a charming and popular good ol’ boy. He’s also a keeper of secrets, both the town’s and his own. He watches from afar as the mystery of Blaine’s disappearance unravels and rumors fly. Were the incipient cartels responsible? Was it a local with a grudge? Or did Blaine himself orchestrate his own disappearance? Then the unthinkable happens, and Noah begins to realize he’s considered a suspect.
Paced like a lit fuse and full of dizzying plot twists, The Bones of Amoret is a riveting whodunit that will keep you guessing all the way to its shocking conclusion.
Lone Star Literary Life Reviews says, “Great action, well-told, and authentic with all the nuances and spirit of small town Texas. Don’t miss it.”
The Bones of Amoret is available in Kindle, audio, and paperback on Amazon.
