Hailed as People magazine's Page-Turner of the Week, with film
rights bought by Paramount, "A Dry Spell" recalls early Stephen
King with its mesmerizing story of a drought-plagued town, a
desperate woman, and the rainmaker who is their last and only hope.

for the past four years. Farms are in foreclosure, people's
livelihoods are on the wane, and the town's beleaguered mortgage

Tom and Karen's love affair, elemental and profound, is
intertwined with the story of a town gripped by fear, and paralyzed
by the sickness at its core. Suspenseful and gripping from the
first page, "A Dry Spell" is a mesmerizing read.
