Unrelenting, unapologetic violence set against a backdrop of rural meth and country justice.
A Swollen Red Sun details what happens when the law finds $50,000 in cash in a cat s*** filled litter box. This story is tightly written and incredibly well crafted. It also reminds one why you never, never, ever want to get caught up in a world where you are the hunter and the hunted.
Excellent sub-plots about maladjusted “love” put this at the top of my favorite summer reads for 2014.
