Powerful stories.
Essential reading and highly recommended.
Watson is a master at hairpin plot turns, and his characters come alive on the page.
Precise, surprising . . . gorgeously turned sentences.--Pam Houston, author of Cowboys Are My Weakness
Consistently delivers that elusive element great Southern writers have always brought to the table--a delicious sense of the unexpected.
