Named a Best Debut of Fall/Winter 2019 by Library Journal, Ain't Nobody Nobody is the story of a disgraced East Texas sheriff, his dead best friend's surly teenage daughter, and a naive ranch hand who find unlikely redemption in a murdered hog hunter on a fence. 
Part Breaking Bad and part Faulkner, this tragi-comic mystery is perfect for readers who enjoy dark humor (think Fargo) and like their crime fiction with a literary flare.

Author Heather Harper Ellett takes on a dark, yet comedic scenic route in her debut novel set in East Texas.  Ain't Nobody Nobody introduces us to Randy Mayhill who was forced into retirement and lost everything of importance to him after a scandal takes place, his best friend's family (Birdie and Onie) and a cast of supporting characters that bring this quiet East Texas tale to life.

It all begins with the discovery of an unidentified man dead on his best friend's property. Mayhill, being the "man of the law" that he was, took control of the situation and sets out to solve the case. I chuckled at his indignation at being treated like "the public" during his initial inquiries. The author did a good job of creating tension and grabbing my attention early on in the story.  Ellett continued to take the reader on a tension-filled ride until the end by adding humor, and drama with twists and turns to keep you interested in this mystery within a mystery. 
Other than the few times that I thought it got a little bit wordy (i.e. describing how to access Mayhill's or Van's land), overall, I enjoyed this read. There was something about his shield of gruffness that will endear Mayhill to you.


Born and raised in East Texas, Heather Harper Ellett is a graduate of SMU and a therapist in private practice. She lives in Dallas with her husband and son.

  2. Nice review, and you are so right about Mahill. Even though he is so utterly flawed, he is so utterly endearing.
