The DreadfulWater Mystery series by Thomas King

This series takes place in a remote town where ex-detective Thumps DreadfulWater has found refuge after a terrible enduring a tragedy. Amid a cast of eccentric, lovable characters Thumps is attempting to rebuild his life as a photographer. Of course, fate keeps intervening by laying bodies at the town’s doorstep forcing Thumps back into the detective role he so desperately wants to shed. This series is Thomas King at his best – funny, wise, sardonic and entertaining (oh, and they’re good mysteries too!)
