With A Land More Kind than Home, Wiley Cash, a native of western North Carolina, produced a debut of raw and uncompromising power, written in a totally persuasive argot. This book is every bit as accomplished (not always the case with follow-ups). It sports the same felicitous use of locale (conjured once again with immense skill) and, at the centre, a totally gripping crime narrative.
