    Loved this book. It’s gripping and fast paced, literate and stylish, and it reads like crazy.

    The sea in which “Sailor” navigates is turbulent indeed. Petty evil, grand evil, the insinuating grip of the past -- and above all, self doubt – are the whirlpools that threaten to drown the core of justice that survives in the two survivors at the heart of Tom Epperson’s thrilling and profound new novel. Gina is on the run from the mob, the law, and the powerful and shadowy System. Gray is on the run from himself. As accident and attraction bring them together, they’re forced to meet each other’s all too familiar enemies.

    Noir is a genre that became cliched in its cradle, but Epperson reinvigorates it by driving his story from its core – how good and right can endure (though not triumph) in the hopelessly damaged and their pitiless world. The manifold plot with all its trails and twists never departs from this demanding truth. Epperson’s prose is beautifully spare in its diction and expansive in its reach. It lets its characters and their world do the talking, and talk they both do – delivering excitement, suspense, humor, and understanding. “Sailor” is a marvelous and utterly captivating book.

    Another Masterful Piece of Work from Tom Epperson

    Good novels are the ones that keep you guessing, drawing you in so that you're always just a step behind the author. Great novels, however, are the ones that keep you just an epiphany from the Big Ideas, the how and why of life and man's place in it. While the former would include a wide array of cleverly written thrillers, the latter most certainly includes Tom Epperson's brilliant second novel, "Sailor." Though his hot little heroine, Gina, certainly keeps you more than guessing (and perhaps fantasizing) as she races and shoots her way through a blown Witness Protection cover, it is the mysterious Gray who will mesmerize the reader on his or her way to enlightenment. As cinematically enigmatic as Don Draper but with the working class mysticism of beat poet Gary Snyder, Gray is a beautiful paradox, an incredibly strong soul inside a soft and graceful appearance, a brick wrapped in silk.

    Gray is also a man with a singular focus, and when that focus becomes the delivery of Gina and her young son, Luke, to a safe place, this novel will take you to places you never knew existed. And like Gina and Luke, you'll be both amazed at and eternally grateful for your arrival--grateful to Gray for his courage and decency, and grateful to Epperson for his first class artistry.

    Great thrillers are fairly commonplace. Built for speed, these thrillers are generally very well-plotted but are stripped of all other elements that might slow the rush to the climax. "Sailor" elevates to the level of great literature because Mr.Epperson is unafraid to add true dimension to the characters while he exhibits a love and respect for the written word. And "Sailor" is no less thrilling for the inclusions!
