Synopsis

Shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2020


A Sunday Times Book of the Year


'Political crime fiction of the highest order' Sunday Times


Nine-year-old Levi King knew he should have left for home sooner; instead he found himself all alone, adrift on the vastness of Caddo Lake. A sudden noise - and all goes dark.


Ranger Darren Mathews is trying to emerge from another kind of darkness; his career and reputation lie in the hands of his mother, who's never exactly had his best interests at heart. Now she holds the key to his freedom, and she's not above a little blackmail to press her advantage.


An unlikely possibility of rescue arrives in the form of a case down Highway 59, in a small lakeside town. With Texas already suffering a new wave of racial violence in the wake of the election of Donald Trump, a black man is a suspect in the possible murder of a missing white boy: the son of an Aryan Brotherhood captain.


In deep country where the rule of law only goes so far, Darren has to battle centuries-old prejudices as he races to save not only Levi King, but himself.

In the politically charged atmosphere just before Trump's inauguration, black Texas Ranger Darren Matthews investigates the disappearance of the son of a jailed white supremacist. Locke's work is always emotionally and morally complex, and in the second in her Highway 59 crime series she examines the intersections of class and race in America as well as the brotherhood between the descendants of slaves and Native Americans long persecuted for their land and discarded by history. Attica Locke never fails so if you've not read her yet, now is the time.
