"The trailer was old, probably thirty, which is about three hundred in trailer years. It canted to the right on cinder-block legs."
-- Down River by John Hart
This is an Edgar winner, and I am really enjoying it. I don't usually do teasers from audio books, but I failed to download one of the disks, so had to get the book book from the library to fill in -- giving me the chance to find a teaser.
James Lee Burke pretty much has a lock on moody, atmospheric Southern mysteries, so I admire an author willing to even give one a shot. That this one is very good, original, and not a Burke homage makes it definitely worth reading. Those Edgar folks picked a good one.
