Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam Soule | 12/29/2013

    " James Sallis, making existential country noir a rewarding but half-wincing pleasure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 12/16/2013

    " Excellent story. I just wish I'd read the first in the series, Cypress Grove, before this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robyn | 12/12/2013

    " Well-written, but sometimes the action can be so understated that you miss something important. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian Vasquez | 12/6/2013

    " Tight, small and eventful. Sallis is a stylist with heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 6/21/2013

    " I'm really liking this author. This is the 2nd book in the series and it was even better than the first. James Sallis is so eloquent. His characters seek simpler lives yet have such compelling tales to tell. Looking forward to reading Salt River. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 3/13/2013

    " 2nd in the Turner mystery series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrs C | 3/23/2012

    " Good sense of place & characters. Intriguing mystery "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey | 10/20/2011

    " I always heard a lot about James Sallis. You do if you follow crime/noir fiction, but I didn't like the first one I read. When I found this Turner trilogy of books I realized why people love him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bayneeta | 5/31/2011

    " Second in a trilogy of short but beautifully written dark and violent suspense novels. Just my cup of tea! First is Cypress Grove and third is Salt River . Turner is an ex-cop and an ex-con living in rural Tennesse. PW and Booklist both gave this starred reviews. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 L | 4/1/2011

    " Solid story & great characters, but it seriously needed some copy-editing. How annoying! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 William Beauvais | 12/20/2010

    " felt that james sallis couldn't make up his mind which kind of book he was writing. climaqx in the middle and the favourite character getting killed with 2 pages to go. "

    " Interesting character development and twists "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peg | 8/9/2010

    " I am very much enjoying this series. Stories more of the characters than the mystery. Well done - almost a James Lee Burke lite. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chele | 1/22/2010

    " It was good - but not as good as "Driver", so I might have a rest from Mr Sallis for a while. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian | 6/14/2009

    " Tight, small and eventful. Sallis is a stylist with heart. "

    " 2nd in the Turner mystery series. "
