Niceville | [Carsten Stroud]

Niceville

A boy literally disappears from Main Street. A security camera captures the moment of his instant, inexplicable vanishing. An audacious bank robbery goes seriously wrong: four cops are gunned down; a TV news helicopter is shot and spins crazily out of the sky, triggering a disastrous cascade of events that ricochet across twenty different lives over the course of just thirty-six hours. Nick Kavanaugh, a cop with a dark side, investigates.

Publisher's Summary

Something is wrong in Niceville....

A boy literally disappears from Main Street. A security camera captures the moment of his instant, inexplicable vanishing. An audacious bank robbery goes seriously wrong: four cops are gunned down; a TV news helicopter is shot and spins crazily out of the sky, triggering a disastrous cascade of events that ricochet across twenty different lives over the course of just thirty-six hours.

Nick Kavanaugh, a cop with a dark side, investigates. Soon he and his wife, Kate, a distinguished lawyer from an old Niceville family, find themselves struggling to make sense not only of the disappearance and the robbery but also of a shadow world, where time has a different rhythm and where justice is elusive.

Compulsively readable, and populated with characters who leap off the page, Niceville will draw you in, excite you, amaze you, horrify you, and, when it finally lets you go, make you sorry you have to leave.

What the Critics Say

"A generous collection of memorable villains, tight action sequences, and an occasional bit of black humor." (Booklist)

"Terrific dialogue, oddball characters, and a wild story make this a great read." (Elmore Leonard, author of Get Shorty and Out of Sight)

"Carsten Stroud's hard-boiled and engrossingNiceville rockets around its deceptively staid southern town, pulling bad guys and worse guys and long-ago misdeeds into a widening and unfolding tale about every kind of wickedness. Somehow it manages to get tighter, nastier, and more delightful as it rolls along toward its lovely and completely black-hearted final pages." (Peter Straub)

    "Good Story- Wrong Reader"

    Stephen King tweeted about how much he liked this book and The Homecoming, so of course I bought it right away! I really liked the story- crime mixed with supernatural elements I guess you could say--but the reader- sorry- just so breathy and sing songy- probably right or some stories, but not for this one.

    So I don't know- maybe try the sample and see if you're ok with the reader before you buy it- or try the book. I see the next one is read by someone else so fingers crossed for a better outcome.
