Lake Charles, by Ed Lynskey

I was privileged to review Lake Charles in preparation for its upcoming release June 15.
With Lake Charles, Ed Lynskey spins a modern noir classic set in the backwoods of Tennessee.  When Brendan Fishback's sister disappears while on vacation, Brendan and his brother-in-law, Cobb, start to search for her.  Police fraud and corruption are just the start of their trouble - they have stumbled into a much bigger mystery . . .  Vivid characters, deft plot twists, and edge-of-your-seat terror mark Lake Charles as one of those rare novels that will be read for generations to come.
 Ed Lynskey's Lake Charles pulls you in and keeps you looking over your shoulder and around upcoming corners, so to speak, for the entire novel.  Set in the 1970's in the woods, it takes you back to that time and straight into trouble along with Brendan.  You won't be able to put it down 'til you know how it ends.

Pre-order it here.
