«With his thrilling, heartfelt debut, Lackey accomplishes a rare feat in contemporary crime fiction...he takes us someplace new, bringing to vivid life the dusty plains of Oklahoma and the tough folks who live there. His Maytubby and Bond are witty and well-matched — the perfect guides through the dry and dark places where Lackey's exciting story unwinds like a rattlesnake.»
— Bill Loehfelm, author of The Devil’s Muse
“Aside from being a top-notch mystery novel, Nail’s Crossing describes the region of south-central Oklahoma, including the Chickasaw Nation, as few Oklahoma-based writings have ever done. This is a novel in which the reader really feels where he or she is taken. And the who-dun-it part of it is exceptional as well.”
-Geary Hobson, author of Plain of Jars and Other Stories and The Last of the Ofos
