Summary

A page-turning psychological puzzle for fans of Shutter Island and True Detective

‘The detail is unerring … and this magisterial grasp of time and place lends the story vivid veracity. The characters leap off the page and the plotting is faultless.’ JOHN BOORMAN (Director of Point Blank and Deliverance)

‘I loved this book: it has such a subtle sense of place, the clear writing pulls you in right from the start, and its ingenious plot line is both shocking and inevitable.’ ANN CLEEVES

In the late 1960s, with America at war in Vietnam, John Q is an old school Texas Ranger – a gun on each hip and quick on the draw. Called to the apparent suicide of a fellow war veteran, John Q suspects all is not as it seems, and very soon faces a desperate race across state as he starts to uncover just how dark some secrets can be…

Critic Reviews

Full of red herrings, beautiful descriptions of the American Deep South, moments where you find your pulse is racing a little because you just know something is going to be said or done … a fantastic appetite-whetting beginning to a series.
