Editorial Reviews

Review

"Author Rod Davis had me right from the start of his new novel, South, America. By the way, don't miss the comma in the title. That pause is important. Davis sets a lively pace...Throw in some voodoo, the mob, race relations in the pre-Katrina South (the book is set in 2000), as well as some classic and modern art, and you have a recipe for a good page-turner."--Gary Jacobson, The Dallas Morning News

"What Rod Davis tackles masterfully in this faux hard-boiled mystery is the capturing in a simple plot of murder, investigation, solution, and deserved punishment of the essential truths of what it is to be born, nurtured, schooled, and acclimated to existence in the American South. [Jack Prine's] struggle to understand the nature of where he truly lives provides this powerfully fascinating novel with energy, soul, and a hope that he'll return in another narrative to 'the hard shadowed streets of the Vieux Carre, the American landfall for the fallen." -- Gerald Duff, Southern Literary Review

"There is much here that brings to mind the Dave Robicheaux novels of James Lee Burke, and Burke’s norteamericano version of magical realism….For readers’ sakes, if not for Jack Prine’s, I sincerely hope those sequels are on the way.” —Jim Sherman, The Texas Observer

"A fine Southern crime noir novel.... evokes the uniquely beautiful but sometimes deadly topographies of New Orleans, the Delta and the Deep South."--Annette Clifford, Montgomery Advertiser

“…suspense and drama in this gritty volume of Southern noir….The backdrop of pre-Katrina New Orleans is perfect for this novel. Davis paints it in tones that show an abiding admiration for the place and its people, and a respect for its enigmatic beauty.”
Yvette Benavides, San Antonio Express-News

"Rod Davis' new thriller is labeled 'A Jack Prine Novel,' and introduces its world-weary hero, savvy and muscular enough to carry on his back what promises to be an engaging Southern noir series… Like the coy comma in the book's title that redetermines its meaning, the novel proceeds by indirection and sly tangent, through sudden explosions of violence into meditations on Southern history and its persistent burdens on the present.” --Mike King, The Austin Chronicle
