Every so often an author will come along who writes in the exact style that you love and for me Andrew Davie is one of those authors. His slow burn crime novellas have truly captured my imagination and his recently published second bolsters his reputation in my mind. Dig Two Graves is set across two different times and locations, first, the war torn jungles of Laos, where we meet CIA pilot, Earl and to North Carolina in 1988, following Luke, a tough, young bail bondsman.

Dig Two Graves by Andrew Davie is a tense, gritty, gruesome rush of a story that is set in two timelines and two places: Laos during the Vietnam War, when the CIA assisted local Hmong natives in their fight against the Communist Pathet Lao, and Charleston, South Carolina in the 1980s, where a bail bondsman goes about his business tracking down criminals.

Like the author's novel Pavement, Dig Two Graves is an excellent addition to new hardboiled fiction. The pacing was brisk, the plotting unexpected, and, given that I knew the Golden Triangle from my own research, the details of setting well-chosen and conv

Dig Two Graves starts with two separate stories. One tells the story of Earl, an Air America pilot working for the C.I.A. flying missions in Laos in 1973 during the Vietnam War. The other thread relates the story of Luke, a Bail Bondsman in Charlotte, South Carolina in 1988. About halfway through this short novel the two stories converge and it’s all out action from there on in, as the tale races to a bloody, lethal climax.
I hadn’t heard of Andrew Davie before reading this novel but this is a gr
