In New Orleans, Texas Ranger John Q is out of his jurisdiction, and possibly out of his depth. After a series of murders it seems that every time he asks questions there’s trouble. But who could be trying to set him up, and why, and who can he turn to in a city where loyalties and family ties rule?
Infused with the rhythms of its iconic setting, The Contract is a thriller which keeps you gripped and guessing all the way to its endgame.
Gulvin hits bullseye on plot, characters and style . . .with echoes of Elmore Leonard and even Cormac McCarthy.
The sense of time and place propels the story well beyond a simple tale of a Texas Ranger, and the final pages are truly chilling.
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.
