Praise

“Anderson rewards…with deadly adventure and the most poetic prose this side of Salt Lake City.” –The New York Times Book Review 
 
 “As he did in his 2015 debut, “The Never-Open Desert Diner,” James Anderson delivers an unconventional mystery melding near lyrical prose with a strong sense of atmosphere and an affinity for oddball characters… A sense of the menacing hangs over the plot of “Lullaby Road,” and when violence erupts, it’s expected, yet still surprising… Lullaby Road works well as a story about isolation, loss, parenting and predators… Anderson evocatively illustrates the beauty and harshness of Utah’s high desert while also delving deep into the characters and their motives for living where they do.” – The Associated Press
 
“ There’s power in creating a sympathetic narrator, and Anderson uses this power to make his points about redemption, about suffering, about unlikely beauty and the realities of being both good and bad…Anderson’s prose is quick and sparse, but also building and rich, much like the desert in which he sets his narrative…Anderson offer’s intrigue, suspense, a few good fist fights and some Mormon quips that would give Joseph Smith himself a hearty chuckle.  But it is his underlying thread about the human need to hide and to be found (and sometimes found out) that makes this novel such a pleasant detour from whatever road a reader is traversing.  This book is absolutely worth your time.” – The Desert News
 
“James Anderson is definitely an author who can write. This lyrical and atmospheric novel takes readers to a unique place with characters of its own and embodies the author’s superb storytelling skills…It reads more like a literary take on a beautiful land unique setting filled with unusual and sometimes comical characters…In a genre saturated with tough-talking heroes in New York and LA, a vulnerable character like Ben Jones in a setting like the Utah desert is a welcome addition to the shelf of any reader looking for an exceptional mystery read.” —Mystery Tribune
