Cover Art Weekend Blog Hop – #2


I wanted to use this week’s cover again from Amy of Simple Love of Reading but came across something else that caught my attention.

The rules are simple:
1. Take the button at the top of Yvonne’s post and post it on your blog.
2. Chose a book cover of your choice and post it. (You can post as many covers as you’d like.)
3. Sign up with Mr. Linky below. Please use the url that links directly to your cover art post.
4. Visit other blogs on the list to see what covers they are featuring this week.

The description from ‘Amazon’ is delightful and makes you want to read this book.

Edgar Award-winning author Tom Franklin returns with his most accomplished and resonant novel so far—an atmospheric drama set in rural Mississippi. In the late 1970s, Larry Ott and Silas “32” Jones were boyhood pals. Their worlds were as different as night and day: Larry, the child of lower-middle-class white parents, and Silas, the son of a poor, single black mother. Yet for a few months the boys stepped outside of their circumstances and shared a special bond. But then tragedy struck: Larry took a girl on a date to a drive-in movie, and she was never heard from again. She was never found and Larry never confessed, but all eyes rested on him as the culprit. The incident shook the county—and perhaps Silas most of all. His friendship with Larry was broken, and then Silas left town.
More than twenty years have passed. Larry, a mechanic, lives a solitary existence, never able to rise above the whispers of suspicion. Silas has returned as a constable. He and Larry have no reason to cross paths until another girl disappears and Larry is blamed again. And now the two men who once called each other friend are forced to confront the past they’ve buried and ignored for decades.

  1. This does sound good and I love the cover. BTW, I didn’t use Mr. Linky this week, that’s why you couldn’t see it 🙂 Thanks for participating!
