Shhh! The next Help

I am so excited to be the person that predicts that this book will be the next phenomenal surprise word-of-mouth blockbuster book of the year.  Imagine an alternate version of The Help.  This one involving a mystery, set in Mississippi and written by a guy.  Which means that there won't be a lot of long, thoughtful delving into any emotions.  But it doesn't mean that the emotional landscape is barren.  It just means there won't be a lot of dissection, introspection and contemplation.  I'm leaving this blog post purposefully vague.  Be the first on your block to check out Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin and you can tell everyone you were part of the crowd that helped make this book a runaway hit.
