    Inhaltsangabe

    A "heartbreakingly resonant" thriller about the explosive intersection of love, race, and justice from a writer and producer of the Emmy-winning Fox TV show Empire (USA Today). 

    "In Bluebird, Bluebird, Attica Locke had both mastered the thriller and exceeded it." (Ann Patchett)  

    When it comes to law and order, East Texas plays by its own rules - a fact that Darren Mathews, a black Texas Ranger, knows all too well. Deeply ambivalent about growing up black in the lone star state, he was the first in his family to get as far away from Texas as he could. Until duty called him home.  

    When his allegiance to his roots puts his job in jeopardy, he travels up Highway 59 to the small town of Lark, where two murders - a black lawyer from Chicago and a local white woman - have stirred up a hornet's nest of resentment. Darren must solve the crimes - and save himself in the process - before Lark's long-simmering racial fault lines erupt. 

    From a writer and producer of the Emmy winning Fox TV show Empire, Bluebird, Bluebird is a rural noir suffused with the unique music, color, and nuance of East Texas.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Attica Locke knows Texas, a place that has shaped both her characters and her life. Locke's new book, Bluebird, Bluebird, is evidence of her deep knowledge and love of her community and a deep talent for writing hype thrillers that also manage to be timely, relevant, and keenly insightful." (Joe Ide, author of IQ and Righteous)

    "With Bluebird, Bluebird, Attica Locke brings freshness and vitality to a beloved form. Her storytelling touch is just so strong! From the first beautifully done scene until the finale, this is a very propulsive novel concerning old deeds that keep influencing the present, injustice, and courage - a powerful and dramatic look at contemporary black life in rural America." (Daniel Woodrell, author of The Maid's Version)

    "Locke's writing is both sharp-edged and lyrical. This is thoughtful, piercing storytelling with the power to transport." (Diana Evans, Financial Times)

    Großartige Geschichte, großartiger Vorleser

    Klasse Hörbuch. Bin begeistert. Habe den Titel nur zufällig gewählt, da Bookriot ihn empfohlen hatte, habe ihn dann auf einer längeren Zugfahrt mit Freude gehört, selbst wenn es manchmal sehr bedrückend ist. Der gegenwärtige Rassismus im Süden der USA wird nur in wenigen Büchern so thematisiert. Werde mir gewiss alle Bücher der Autorin besorgen.
