"A white supremacist’s son is missing in this subtle thriller"

anyone who has read the two Porter novels she has written so far, Black Water Rising and Pleasantville, will know that Locke is a writer who can decant a whole mess of problems into a richly layered, involving and evocative read. She peppers her prose with Southern speech without sounding hokey — the missing boy’s mother, for instance, has a voice that’s “husky, like aged molasses that had crystallized and developed sharp edges”.
