SCAREFEST Review: Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin

A powerful and resonant novel from Tom Franklin—critically acclaimed author of Smonk and Hell at the Breech—Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter tells the riveting story of two boyhood friends, torn apart by circumstance, who are brought together again by a terrible crime in a small Mississippi town. An extraordinary novel that seamlessly blends elements of crime and Southern literary fiction, Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter is a must for readers of Larry Brown, Pete Dexter, Ron Rash, and Dennis Lehane.
From Barnes & Noble

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel.  I'm a huge fan of Dennis Lehane and I was shocked when I read this book and realized that Tom is right up there with Dennis in my eyes.  It's a great thriller and shouldn't be missed.  Five stars!
