Product Details


Advance praise for Dead Low Tide

“[A] critique of class distinctions and outmoded laws… [with a] particular noirish kick.”The New York Times Book Review
“The best book Bret Lott has ever written—by far. He creates a Charleston that has never been written about in the history of that remarkable city. It is a literary thriller of the highest order—like something John Le Carré would write. I couldn’t put it down.”—Pat Conroy, author of South of Broad
Dead Low Tide should be retitled High Water Mark. Bret Lott is a combination of James Lee Burke and Elmore Leonard but with the grace and poise of Pat Conroy. Not a word is out of place. Reading this book is like listening to good music—as you reach the end, you want to start all over again. Dead Low Tide has made me a Bret Lott lifer. I’m going back and reading everything he’s written, and I’ll be first in line when the next comes out.”—Ridley Pearson, author of In Harm’s Way
“Bret Lott has done it again: linked a small family drama to a matter of national importance. Though he tells his tale, as always, with a lyric sweetness, terror—both private and public—is the subject here.”—Nicholas Delbanco, author of Lastingness: The Art of Old Age

“This literary thriller of the first order grippingly deals with current events while revealing the secrets, ambitions, loves, and fears of a family that readers grow to cherish.”–Library Journal
Praise for Bret Lott’s The Hunt Club
“I turned the pages so insistently that, had there been pictures on the pages instead of print, it would have made a movie. It’s that suspenseful.”—Wally Lamb
“A nerve-jangling thriller.”—Boston Sunday Globe
