<p>“<em>The Cutting Season</em> is a rare murder mystery with heft, a historical novel that thrills, a page-turner that makes you think. Attica Locke is a dazzling writer with a conscience.”<br />—Dolen Perkins-Valdez, <em>New York Times </em>bestselling author of <em>Wench</em></p><p>Attica Locke’s breathtaking debut novel, <em>Black Water Rising</em>, won resounding acclaim from major publications coast-to-coast and from respected crime fiction masters like James Ellroy and George Pelecanos, earning this exciting new author comparisons to Dennis Lehane, Scott Turow, and Walter Mosley. Locke returns with <em>The Cutting Season</em>, a second novel easily as gripping and powerful as her first—a heart-pounding thriller that interweaves two murder mysteries, one on Belle Vie, a historic landmark in the middle of Lousiana’s Sugar Cane country, and one involving a slave gone missing more than one hundred years earlier. <em>Black Water Rising</em> was nominated for a <em>Los Angeles Times</em> Book Prize, an Edgar® Award, and an NAACP Image Award, and was short-listed for the Orange Prize in the U.K. <em>The Cutting Season</em> has been selected by bestselling author Dennis Lehane as the first pick for his new line of books at HarperCollins.<br /></p>
