Summary:

In a dusty town in Nebraska's rugged sandhills, weary sheriff's deputy Harley Jensen patrols the streets at night, on the lookout for something--anything--out of the ordinary. It's July 1978, and the heat is making people ornery, restless. That and the Reddick family patriarch has decided, decades after authorities ended the search for his murdered boy's body, to lay a headstone. Instead of bringing closure, this decision is the spark that threatens to set Pickard County ablaze. On a fateful night after the memorial service, Harley tails the youngest Reddick and town miscreant, Paul, through the abandoned farms and homes outside their run-down town. The pursuit puts Harley in the path of Pam Reddick, a restless young woman looking for escape, bent on cutting the ties of motherhood and marriage. Filled with desperate frustration, Pam is drawn to Harley's dark history, not unlike that of her husband, Rick--a man raised in the wreckage of a brother's violent death and a mother's hardened fury. Unfolding over six tense days, Pickard County Atlas sets Harley and the Reddicks on a collision course--propelling them toward an incendiary moment that will either redeem or end them.... -- from book jacket.
