My first experience of reading Attica Locke was The Cutting Season and from the first sentence to the last word, I was hooked. There are few writers, these days, whom I check up on for hints of new works but Locke is one of them. It is, therefore, redundant to point out how excited I was to discover Pleasantville had been published. Tomorrow, when I make my weekly excursion to the library, I will try and obtain a copy of Black Water Rising and reserve Pleasantville and immerse myself in Locke’s world.
