Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin

Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom FranklinTitle:  Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter

Author:  Tom Franklin

Call #:  FRA

Main characters Silas and Larry were good friends when they were little but they had to hide their friendship because of racial tension in their small Mississippi town that is written wonderfully by Franklin.  In high school they drift apart; Larry is believed to be the killer in an unsolved case of a girl who disappeared while Silas becomes a star baseball player.  Flash to present day – Larry is still known as Scary Larry, and Silas is the town constable.  Another girl has gone missing and all eyes land on Larry.  Although there is a mystery, the story is more about relationships and how perceptions affect beliefs and actions.

  1. I really appreciated this recommendation. It was a good read and really transported me to another place. A great pick for Dennis Lehane fans.
