Cold in July

Joe R. Lansdale: Cold in July (UK 2014)

From the Publisher:
Night. You wake suddenly.
Someone's in your house. Is your family safe? You stumble from bed. You must investigate.
If you had a gun, would you take it? If your life was threatened, would you use it?

Richard Dane, face-to-face with an armed intruder, does. With one shot he takes a man's life and changes his own forever.

The police say it is a clear-cut case of self-defence - the deceased is a no-account ex-con wanted by the law. No one blames Richard... except the dead man's father who, hell-bent on revenge, sets his sights on Richard's own four-year-old son.

As father is pitted against father, both men are inexorably drawn into dangerous territory as small-town secrets peal away to reveal a vile conspiracy that will threaten to devour them both.

Joe R. Lansdale: Cold in July. With an introduction by Jim Mickle. Head of Zeus, ISBN: 9781784081966 (June, 2014), 260 p., £7.99, eBook £6.49.

Cold in July

Joe R. Lansdale: Cold in July (USA 2014)

From the Publisher:
From the Edgar Award-winning author of the Hap and Leonard mysteries comes a shocking crime thriller to chill the even the warmest summer's night. By turns vivid, raw, and darkly comedic, this mystery classic inspired the 2014 major motion picture Cold in July, starring Michael C. Hall (Dexter) Sam Shepard (Black Hawk Down), and Don Johnson (Miami Vice).

Richard Dane has killed a man. He cannot unhear the firing of the gun or unsee the blood on his living room wall. But everybody in the small town of LaBorde, Texas knows Dane acted in self defense. Everybody except Ben Russel, the ex-con father of the small-time criminal who invaded Dane's home.

When Russel comes looking for revenge against Dane's family, the two are unexpectedly drawn into a conspiracy that conceals the vilest of crimes. Surrounded by police corruption, mafia deception, and underworld brutality, Dane, Russel, and eccentric PI Jim Bob Luke have discovered a game they may not survive.

Cold in July

Joe R. Lansdale: Cold in July (UK 2001)

From the Publisher:
To kill a man, even in self-defence, is no easy thing for a man with a conscience. He has to answer to himself, put the episode behind him, get on with his life. This is very difficult when the dead man's father, a murderous ex-con, is determined to avenge the shooting, no matter what the rights and wrongs. Richard Dane is a small businessman, a family man with a son of his own. Ben Russell, the ex-con, has a very simple proposition: an eye for an eye, a son for a son. But the truth is anything but simple, and before long Dane and Russell, misled and manipulated, are awkward allies in a living nightmare of paranoia and psychopathic sex, violence and corruption.
