Assisted by his unlikely companion, the elderly Buster Lighthouse Smith, a retired reservation cop, Stanley's investigation reveals secrets from the past that should perhaps have been left hidden.
Evocative, haunting and inspired, "A Fine Dark Line" treats readers to a true taste of Texas in the late s. The kind of small town, intimate in its relationships, forever frozen in attitudes shaped by history, that will live in readers' minds long after the book is shelved. Each character, no matter how incidental, sings out, marking his or her own place in the enclosed universe created by Lansdale, contributing their own unique notes to the overall symphony of plot.
As a former Texan, I could not help but yearn for the pseudo-simplicity of nights cruising the DQ, while all the time recognizing the falsehood hidden behind the bright lights and pickups. If you enjoy diving into a finely-crafted novel, then pick up a copy of "A Fine Dark Line". You will not be disappointed.
