“This down-and-dirty yarn is a powerful evocation of pre-Katrina New Orleans and as absorbing a tale of love and evil to come out of this old town since Ace Atkins and Tony Dunbar hit the scene. South, America is a triumph of Southern noir, populated with characters who’ll stay with you long after the last page, including sometime PI Jack Prine, Elle, his brainy and brave new love, and an all too-real supporting cast of thugs, low-lifes, and Southern degenerates. You heard it first here: In South, America, Rod Davis is the new mayor of the mean streets!”
–Julie Smith, Edgar award-winning author of New Orleans Mourning
“South, America may be set in the Deep South—New Orleans and the Mississippi Delta—but writer Rod Davis takes us into that classic hardboiled territory once claimed by James Cain: a man with a wandering eye drawn to a femme fatale who promises nothing but trouble, then delivers it.”
—Christopher Cook, author of Robbers and Screen Door Jesus & Other Stories
South, America will be released by New South Books.
