The Grass Harp by Truman Capote
"Truman Capote masterfully turns the somber Benji figure of Faulkner's lore into a boy that's almost a movie camera. Mostly mute, he gives the reader insights both witty and sad (like a Sunday, like a Johnny Cash Sunday). He is a sly observer &..." Read more of this review »

John Lansing is a fantastic writer. I was thoroughly caught in the web of intrigue from page one.
This guy knows how to hold the tension and suspense and I can't wait for the next Jack Bertolini installment. Five stars!
