Amasterly new thriller from the Edgar Awardwinning writer who has a folklorists eye for telling detail and a front-porch raconteurs sense of pace (The New York Times Book Review). After a scandalous affair costs him his job in Houston, Cason StatlerGulf War veteran and Pulitzer Prizenominated journalistreturns home to the small east Texas town of Camp Rapture. Cason is a wreck. He drinks too much, hes stalking his ex-girlfriend, and hes wallowing in envy of his successful older brother. To get back on his feet, he takes a job at the local paper, and when he stumbles across his predecessors notes on a cold case murder file, he thinks hes found the thing thatll keep him out of trouble. No such luck. The further he digs into the case, the more certain he is that the unsolved crime is connected to a series of eerie, unsettling, inexplicable events that have recently occurred in town. And he knows his suspicions are right on when he finds himself dragged into a deadly game of blackmail and murder that clearly has evil as its only goal. Leather Maidenis a brash amalgam of suspense, raw humor, and mystery that unfolds in the vividly rendered shadowy lowlands of eastern Texas. Its country noir as only Joe Lansdale can do it.
