Growing up in Peculiar County, Kansas, is a mighty...well, peculiar experience. In 1965, things get even stranger for Dibby Caldwell, the mortician's fifteen year old daughter. A young boy's ghost haunts Dibby into unearthing the circumstances of his death.
Nobodyâliving or deadâwants her to succeed. James, the new mop-topped, bad boy at school doesnât help. Dibby canât get him out of her head, even though she doesnât trust him. No, sir, there's nothing much more peculiar than life in Peculiar Countyâ¦except maybe death in Peculiar County.
About the Author
Stuart R. West is a lifelong resident of Kansas, which he considers both a curse and a blessing. It's a curse because...well, it's Kansas. But it's great becauseâ¦well, itâs Kansas. Lots of cool, strange and creepy things happen in the Midwest, and Stuart takes advantage of them in his work. Call it âKansas Noir.â Stuart writes thrillers and mysteries usually tinged with humor, both for adult and young adult audiences.
Stuart spent 25 years in the corporate sector and now writes full time. Heâs married to a professor of pharmacy (who greatly appreciates the fact he cooks dinner for her every night) and has a 25 year old daughter whoâs dabbling in the nefarious world of banking.
