    Powerful

    A glorious yet fearful glimpse into a part of americana rarely seen. I found this book captivating. It gives us a picture of life along the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers both in the rural south and the metropolitan areas of New Orleans and Cincinnati. Focused in the 1920's, the story line draws out the lifestyle of many who inhabited that area.

    The Missing by Tim Gautreaux

    You may want to start with "The Clearing" or his fun first novel "The Next Step in The Dance" or "Welding with Children." I found "The Missing" by Tim Gautreaux not quite as strong as those books, but maybe because it was too ambitious and I'm uncomfortable criticizing ambition. The story concerns abducted children, takes place in the teens and early 1920s, right after World War I. Gautreaux writes about New Orleans, Louisiana and surrounding environs. He's one of the best writers around and should have a wider audience. Although there were bits of the plot that seemed a tad contrived, the characters are well drawn, the dialog at times excellent and the sentences at times truly sublime. The theme is about the destructiveness of violent behavior on both the perpetrators and victims. visit - http://timothyherrick.blogspot.com/
