Deaf Row by Ron Franscell

Ron Franscell is a beloved Wyoming author AND New York Times Best Seller AND he will be joining us for this month’s Virtual Book Club Chat!

Here’s what the publisher had to say about his latest book “Deaf Row.”

“Deaf Row” is more than a tense mystery novel, more than an unnerving psychological thriller drawn from Ron Franscell’s career as a bestselling true-crime writer and journalist. It is also a novel of men pushing back against time and death, trying not to disappear entirely. “Deaf Row” is a moving, occasionally humorous, portrait of flawed people caught in a web of pain and regret. And although you might think you know where this ghastly case is headed, the climax will blindside you!

    I’m looking forward to this book but I’m not sure how I will react because I have a tender heart.

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      Sometimes these thrillers are hard to read for those who are soft-hearted!

      1. Melody Dugan says:

        I have read Patricia Cornwell and I’m sure it will be even better! I love reading Wyoming authors so this will be exciting!

  2. Jenn says:

    Number one I want to read this because it is a Wyoming Author and I love supporting anything local. Second I enjoy mystery novels and last but not least Imlove to read but don’t often make time for it. That is a goal of mine is to read more and am always looking for good recommendations. Hoping this virtual book club will help me with my goal and connect with other people outside of my close circle.

    1. Prairie Wife says:

      These are all great reasons! I hope you join us and make some new friends 🙂
