Leather Maiden

Joe R. Lansdale: Leather Maiden (USA 2008)

From the Publisher:
A masterly new thriller from the Edgar Award-winning writer who has "a folklorist's eye for telling detail and a front-porch raconteur's sense of pace" (The New York Times Book Review).

After a scandalous affair costs him his job in Houston, Cason Statler -- Gulf War veteran and Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist -- returns home to the small east Texas town of Camp Rapture. Cason is a wreck. He drinks too much, he's stalking his ex-girlfriend, and he's 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 predecessor's notes on a cold case murder file, he thinks he's found the thing that'll 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, 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 Maiden is a brash amalgam of suspense, raw humor, and mystery that unfolds in the vividly rendered shadowy lowlands of eastern Texas. It's country noir as only Joe Lansdale can do it.
