Praise for The Drop Edge of Yonder..."Casey's mellow third Alafair Tucker laid-back as its 1914 Oklahoma convincing voice to the early Midwest much as Sharyn McCrumb does for her Appalachians." -Publishers WeeklyWho killed Uncle Bill? Alafair Tucker is desperate to find out. One August evening in 1914, a bushwhacker ended a pleasant outing by blowing a hole in Bill McBride, kidnapping and ravaging Bill's fiancée, and wounding Alafair's daughter Mary. Does Mary know who did the low-down deed? If she does, the bullet that grazed her knocked that information right out of her head. All she remembers is that it has something to do with the Fourth of July.Several malicious acts testify to the fact that Bill's killer is still around and attempting to cover his tracks. The question is, can Mary remember before the murderer manages to eliminate everyone who could identify him?The law is hot on the bushwhacker's trail.

If there's a chance she can protect Mary from further harm or help her remember, she'll do anything she can. Even confront a vicious killer.
