Praise for High White Sun

“The best cop novel I’ve read in years.” — John Sandford

“Superb . . . combines multifaceted characters with edge-of-the-seat suspense. . . . Scott excels at presenting the juxtaposition of the horrific and the mundane. . . . Ace Atkins fans will relish this gritty crime novel.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A gripping tale of murder and revenge . . . The descriptions and the characters are exceptional. . . . Tense, brutal, and satisfying for thriller fans.”—Kirkus Reviews

High White Sun is a striking novel from one of the most formidable crime writers working today.  J. Todd Scott captures the rough beauty of Big Bend, Texas, and the even rougher men and women living on both sides of the law.  Whispers of Winslow and McCarthy sound across these pages, but the determining voice is all Scott’s – specific, lyrical and keen to time and place.  This is an authentic contemporary Western in the best sense of the words.”—T. Jefferson Parker, author of The Room of White Fire

“This hot blast of desert wind is by turns ruthless and heartfelt, lyrical and violent, and, like all great stories, feels utterly true.  J. Todd Scott knows borderland Texas like nobody else, and it shows.”—Nick Petrie, author of Light It Up

Praise for The Far Empty:

“J. Todd Scott’s Far Empty is so good I wish I’d written it. The poetic and bloody ground of west Texas has given birth to a powerful new voice in contemporary western crime fiction.”—Craig Johnson, New York Times-bestselling author of the Walt Longmire Series

“The rough and bloody borderlands of west Texas provide the backdrop for this rousing debut novel, a hybrid of mystery and contemporary western.” —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“Smartly captures the vast skies, bleak beauty and unchecked wildness of deepest West Texas . . . Fast-moving . . . Intriguing . . . A frank, unpolished view of life near the border . . . An impressive debut—a memorable story and a rich portrayal of West Texas.” —Houston Chronicle
