Jack has crossed a boundary, and he knows it. What he doesn’t know is how to get back. He loves his wife but is caught in the petty disputes of his neighbors and their daughter. Surrounded by the inescapable gossip of small-town life and the unyielding nature of those around him, Jack will search for a way to escape the tangled conspiracy of his life-- accused of an affair, and eventually, murder – as his world constricts around him, as sharp and painful as barbed wire. A Conspiracy of Little Things is a bitter-sweet romance and mystery set in the scabland desert of eastern Washington State.
Michael C. Staudinger lives and works amid the vineyards and rolling desert of his home state, Washington. A Conspiracy of Little Things is his second published novel.
