Review: "Bad Country" by CB McKenzie

Rodeo Grace Garnet and his old dog live in a long ago abandoned office of a planned community trailer park originally known, according to the faded sign skewered on a splintered pole, as “Vista Montana Estates--An Active Life Community.”  Considering this is Arizona the use of “Montana” might be just one of the…
