Edge of Dark WaterEdge of Dark Water by Joe R. Lansdale

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


When they come upon the dead body of one of their friends in the river with a sewing machine tied to her ankle, three friends decide to take her ashes to Hollywood as was her dream. Their lives are unpleasant and they see no reason to stay in the small town where they are. Lansdale is a great writer who creates great atmosphere and memorable characters, even as the plot of this book is a bit contrived and implausible. Like a river, though, Lansdale carries you through and you can't help but suspend disbelief. Entertaining with riveting scenes full of heartbreak and suspense. Recommended.
