Warwolf

( 2 )

Overview

Deputy Ray Tatum returns in a story of Blue Ridge crime and carnage, kicked off by the discovery of a body high in the limbs of a black oak tree. Wry, laconic, and more than a little world-weary, Tatum pursues a savage killer through the rural Virginia uplands with the hot-headed assistance of Special Agent Kate LeComte. Warwolf is by turns hilarious and deeply unsettling, and T.R. Pearson's gift for capturing the true voice of the new south is on conspicuous display. The mountains of Virginia have never seemed ...

Overview

Deputy Ray Tatum returns in a story of Blue Ridge crime and carnage, kicked off by the discovery of a body high in the limbs of a black oak tree. Wry, laconic, and more than a little world-weary, Tatum pursues a savage killer through the rural Virginia uplands with the hot-headed assistance of Special Agent Kate LeComte. Warwolf is by turns hilarious and deeply unsettling, and T.R. Pearson's gift for capturing the true voice of the new south is on conspicuous display. The mountains of Virginia have never seemed so dangerously alive, and there remains no better company in the southern highlands than Deputy Ray Tatum.

Ray Tatum also appears in Cry Me A River, Blue Ridge, and Polar -- written to be read in no particular order.

Editorial Reviews

Jacqueline Carey
Practitioners and fans of the mystery genre have long used Faulkner to shore up its sometimes shaky reputation. Sooner or later, they'll be doing the same with T.R. Pearson.

The New York Times
Roger Anderson
It's a rare and awesome thing to see a writer take perhaps the worst there is -- the tawdry, vain, illiterate, squalid, lurid, basest parts of all that's unrefined -- and transform it magically into a rare and perfect tone for comedy. It's the kind of magic only children seem to have. Yet Pearson does it, and with the touch and control of a master of his craft.

    Page turner! Highly recommended!

    I started Warwolf last night just to take a little break from War and Peace, which I've been plugging away at for a week or so now. So the plan was just to read a chapter or two of Warwolf for variety's sake. But that didn't happen. I stayed up late last night reading and finished the book this afternoon. Warwolf features the same well-polished prose and attention to characterization and descriptive detail that you find in Mr. Pearson's other books. But what makes this one different is that it is very plot-driven. It's a page-turner! The author has said that the book is a little grim. I'll see that and raise him a "grotesque". You'd have to look hard to find a character that you'd say was "normal". And yet, at the same time, you feel a tenderness for some of them, pity for several others; you feel revolted by several, and then there's one or two that evoke a deep ambivalence. But there aren't any characters in the book who you don't end up feeling strongly about, one way or another, including the minor characters. It's a talented writer who can push that much emotion to you through the pages of a book. Highly recommended.
