    Very good mix of horror and mystery

    Joe Lansdale will take you to dark places in anything he writes. "Lost Echoes" is no exception. It's the story of a young man who's haunted by sounds of past events anywhere he goes. If there was a crime committed somewhere, be it big or small, Harry 'hears' it -- and experiences it all over again. It makes him something of a social outcast who drowns his fear in the bottle and in an isolated life.

    "Lost Echoes" is about a few seemingly random encounters linking together and how Harry puts himself back together through a few friends and solving a couple fairly serious crimes that he's an unwitting witness to.

    Lansdale's prose is terse and vivid, as always. The characters are cleverly drawn and motivated. What I like, though, is Lansdale doesn't cheat our experience by making everyone deceitful or bogus. Harry finds good people and learns good things from them. This is a story of finding peace, not finding back stabbers.

    This is a very entertaining and engaging book. But, be warned, Lansdale travels some unsavory roads. But it's worth it.
