“The Cutting Season” by Attica Locke / Reviewed by Clay Stafford

The Cutting Season by Attica Locke

I enjoy surprise endings and how the murder mystery element is used to bring us into a larger world. It is an African American perspective of Southern history over the last 100 years beginning with a gruesome murder in Louisiana from an author (Locke) attracting the extremely deserved literary spotlight.
