Lott is one of the lazy mystery/thriller writers who, instead of unraveling the plot - and exposing the villain - slowly and intricately throughout the book, just has the villains detail all their crimes (and the reasons for them) to the heroes. Fiction dosn't get any lazier than that. The book is dull, not suspenseful, and by the end, you couldn't care less who the villain is or what the motive is. Awful. Just plain awful.
Gritty, suspenseful, compelling novel by the author of Jewel.
Story told through the voice of a fatherless 15 year old boy raised in South Carolina swamps and backlands - centered on an area of woods and swamp used for hunting...
Great mystery....strong characters...action.....suspense....also a venture into adulthood for the main character. Good all around book.
Once I find a good author, I tend to read his/her other books. You won't be disappointed.
