Praise

Praise for High White Sun

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

“As addictive as the best crime show.”–Newsweek

“[Scott], a real-life DEA agent, gives you everything you could want in a West Texas crime saga: generational conflicts; the sights and smells of an exotic landscape; the ghosts of monsters and loved ones past. And a dose of well-earned wisdom: ‘No matter what people said,’ reflects the widower Harper, ‘dying was easy….It was living that was twice as hard.’”—The Wall Street Journal

“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
