Pleasantville by Attica Locke

Pleasantville is an engrossing combination of intrigue, action, and personal drama that put me in mind of an early John Grisham novel, but with far more heart. The story begins with a missing woman, a community mobilizing for a search that is all too familiar, and a lawyer who is unwillingly pulled from his personal grief into a public role. Locke weaves together the complicated lives of a powerful political family and the ongoing conflict between corporate greed and community welfare. I really enjoyed that the political intrigue initially felt outdated but Locke pulled twists and turns at the end to reveal its contemporary national implications.
