A sudden noise - and all goes dark.Ranger Darren Mathews is trying to emerge from another kind of darkness; his career and reputation lie in the hands of his mother, who's never exactly had his best interests at heart. Now she holds the key to his freedom, and she's not above a little blackmail to press her advantage.An unlikely possibility of rescue arrives in the form of a case down Highway 59, in a small lakeside town. With Texas already suffering a new wave of racial violence in the wake of the election of Donald Trump, a black man is a suspect in the possible murder of a missing white boy: the son of an Aryan Brotherhood captain.In deep country where the rule of law only goes so far, Darren has to battle centuries-old prejudices as he races to save not only Levi King, but himself.

Notă biografică

Attica Locke is the author of Heaven, My Home, a Waterstones Book of the Month, Bluebird, Bluebird which won the CWA Steel Dagger and an Edgar Award; Pleasantville, which won the 2016 Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction and was longlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction; Black Water Rising, which was nominated for an Edgar Award and shortlisted for the Orange Prize; and The Cutting Season, a national bestseller and winner of the Ernest Gaines Award for Literary Excellence. Attica Locke has worked on the adaptation of Celeste Ng's Little Fires Everywhere and Ava DuVernay's Netflix series about the Central Park Five, When They See Us. A native of Houston, Texas, Attica lives in Los Angeles, California, with her husband and daughter.


Propulsive and compelling ... digs deep into the tension between "the impulse to police crimes against black life and to protect black life from police" ... loving, elegiac evocations of Texas set alongside extended meditations on displacement, reconciliation and forgiveness, and on what "home" means in a place where it's an idea you can't "exactly touch"
A powerful, angry, important book. Attica Locke is a major talent.
One of America's finest crime novelists ... a beautifully wrought mystery and an incisive portrait of the American South in the age of Trump.
A superb thriller
A tightly plotted crime novel centring on the disappearance of a child, and a blistering look at race in Donald Trump's America.
Locke deftly shows how crime novels are the perfect place in which to explore the tensions between different people and communities. Her insightful exploration of a post-Trump world offers something genuinely new.
Magnificent ... shines an unflinching light on an ugly side of contemporary America
The most celebrated African-American writer of crime fiction. Although her books are about the black experience in the US, they are universal in scope ... a consummate storyteller.
Praise for Bluebird, Bluebird:'America's most interesting crime writer'
This is the best kind of thriller: as literate and thoughtful as it is fast-moving. Attica Locke has bags of style, and sings the blues on every page ... the curtain-raiser for what promises to be a compelling series
Mesmerising ... In this age of enduring and renewed racial tensions, we need her voice more than ever
Locke's writing is both sharp-edged and lyrical. This is thoughtful, piercing storytelling with the power to transport
Attica Locke has both mastered the thriller and exceeded it. Ranger Darren Mathews is tough, honour-bound and profoundly alive in a corrupt world
Locke brings freshness and vitality to a beloved form ... A powerful and dramatic look at contemporary black life in rural America
Uncompromising, intelligent crime fiction that refuses to sugar-coat the answers.
Attica Locke combines a searingly exciting story with an intelligent exploration of racial prejudice in the US, righteously angry, but never simplifying the issues involved
Tense, well-paced ... penetrating social commentary
