"Gripping Storytelling. I found The Good Sheriff to be an interesting thriller/suspense novel. Despite having a few different theories about what exactly was going on in the quiet Rogue Valley, I was way off. Mike Walters did a good job of reeling me in for the ride. If you enjoy murder mysteries, I'd say this book is for you."

About Mike Walters
From an early age, Mike realized that life was more fun when unencumbered by a strict adherence to the truth. In other words, he learned to make up stories. Be it the size of the steelhead that broke his line and slipped back into the mighty Rogue River, or the glaring new scratch on his father’s truck, Mike was always ready with a yarn to spin and an audience to dupe, delight and most importantly, entertain.
