Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thorn has captivated readers with each of his haunting appearances in James Hall's South Florida thrillers. A dark, brooding hero who understands the passions that drive men to violence, Thorn faced down a hijacker in Buzz Cut and hunted brutal killers in both Gone Wild and Mean High Tide. But it is Hall's first novel that reveals the dark mystery of Thorn's past, and explains why he is one of the most intriguing and complex characters in crime fiction.

At nineteen, Thorn committed a crime that would haunt him for the rest of his life — he stalked and murdered the drunk driver who killed his parents. With that one act of vengeance, Thorn set off a chain of events that would plunge him into a nightmare of betrayal and revenge — in a novel that is James Hall's darkest and most emotionally powerful work to date.

This unique reader's edition of Under Cover of Daylight, complete with a special Introduction, will be remembered as a genuine classic of crime fiction — the stunning debut novel that started it all, by the writer The New York Times hailed as the unrivaled "master of suspense."

Review:

"Hall effectively combines Ridley Person-like suspense and forensic detail with a near-flawless grasp of character; his Floridian loonies are as loony as Hiaasen's, but they go well beyond caricature: loonies with heart." Booklist

Review:

"James Hall's prose runs as clean and fast as Gulf Stream waters." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"A double-barreled actioner set apart from the pack by Hall's virtuoso control of tone, which can shift you from giggles to gasps with a single well-trimmed phrase." Kirkus Reviews
