Cannert is searching throughout Florida for his missing wife, Martha. While he was in the hospital, coping with the latest round of treatment for his terminal cancer, Martha was in Flordia looking for an appropriate place for the two of them to retire and for him to die. When he recovered enough to get out of the hospital, Martha had disappeared without a trace. Unsure whether she'd simply left him, whether she'd been killed along the road in Flordia, or something else more sinister, Cannert is on a slow search of the likely places she might have stopped, looking into rumors and quiet whispers of old people - aka 'snowbirds' - disappearing.
     While he searches, a woman found badly abused, near death, with a massive head injury, slowly recovers in a mental hospital. She remembers almost nothing, only knowing someone out there is looking for her. And, with no knowledge of who she is, and where she can go, she goes on the run from a shadowy man that she spies watching her from outside the hospital's fence.
A classically noir novel about justice, retribution, aging -- and the dark underside of society.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Chapter 1
Cannert happened upon the auto court after the better part of a day of driving. The motel, that being what it was now called, was far off the interstates on a secondary Florida state road. It wasn’t greatly different from other remodeled auto court motels he’d seen except this one seemed more valiantly kept up and appeared as if it might have been recently repainted.
Martha’s only card had come from Lake City, less than two hundred miles away. Cannert knew she liked two-lane roads and clean, cheap, small motels.

Praise for Snowbird's Blood

"In a complex and deftly constructed novel, Hensley provides both a detective story and the ambiguity of real life."
