Publisher's Summary

James Sallis, author of the Lew Griffin detective stories, has been praised as one of Southern literature's most original voices. In Cypress Grove, a murder with eerie connections to the past brings a man back to his calling. Turner was a homicide cop long ago, until he got mixed up in the wrong case and ended up behind bars himself. Now retired to a cabin in a small Southern town, Turner's been recruited by the local Sheriff to help solve a bizarre and gruesome case.

    "atmospheric mystery"

    i enjoyed listening to this story unfold. the story and characters were interesting and fully formed. i enjoyed the regional cadence and phrasing. the narrator was excellent at dealing with the flashback material -- keeping the listener current with the sequencing. there were enough twists and turns to keep one listening.

    Story
    "Lame and rambling..."

    I still don't know what this book was about. Where there are some clever sentences? Absolutely. Do I doubt that the author is a bright guy? Not at all. Will I be going back to this author anytime soon? No.in my humble opinion, this story failed on multiple levels. I don't know enough about fiction writing to provide a sophisticated analysis or anything, but I know that it's a miracle I got through this one.I chose this author because I greatly enjoyed the movie Drive, based on his book. So this was a disappointing experience.

    Story
    "Nice pace, short but well done"

    This wasn't a "huge" story about saving the world. Just a small mystery with some character background slowly revealed as the pursuit unfolds. The pacing is relaxed and mirrors the small town flavor of the story, and while i'm not sure i would have liked this for a longer read, this seemed just about right. Enjoyable.
