The New York Times bestselling author Tom Franklin stuns with his most thrilling novel so far. Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter is an atmospheric drama set in rural Mississippi in the late 1970s. In a small town, Larry and Silas grow up to become boyhood friends, even though their backgrounds could not be more different: Larry grew up in a lower-middle class, white two-parent household, while Silas was raised by a poor, black single mother. More than twenty years after, torn apart by circumstance and reunited by tragedy, the two men who once called each other friend have to dig up a buried past they never wanted to face again. Beautifully written with descriptive phrasing that resonates cinematic pictures, compellingly diverse characters and an emotionally gripping story that sinks deep into the psyche of the American South, this resonant novel from the award-winning author of the critically-acclaimed Hell at the Breech is a real page turner.
