White River Burning
A Dave Gurney Novel: Book 6
"John Verdon writes grown-up detective novels, by which I mean stories with intelligent plots, well-developed characters and crimes that have social consequences. White River Burning, featuring the author's brainy gumshoe-for-hire, Dave Gurney, checks all these boxes." —The New York Times Book Review

As the town spirals out of control, local authorities approach Dave Gurney to conduct an independent investigation of the shooting.White River Burning is the most provocative and timely book yet by the author hailed by The New York Times as "masterly."
