Everybody’s talking about the weather in the small North Dakota town of Goodlands, cursed with a devastating drought while, spookily, just outside town the rain falls normally. Banker Karen Grange, desperate after overseeing so many foreclosures, solicits the help of a legendary rainmaker, Thompson Keatley. While the two deflect the suspicions of paranoid locals, unearth the town’s secrets, and do battle with torrents of angry spirits, Susie Moloney intertwines powerful psychological, supernatural, and sexual undercurrents — making A Dry Spell an absorbing rainy-afternoon read. B+
