Summary
  • For months, a man watches a lonely woman eat in a San Francisco cafe and when she commits suicide he investigates. The probe leads him to the murder of her husband and daughter for which a Nevada town holds her responsible
  • A haunted woman’s suicide pulls a California man into the poisonous secrets of a bleak Nevada desert town in Bill Pronzini’s masterful work of noir fiction, which was named a New York Times Notable Book There is something about the sad woman eating alone night after night at the Harmony Café that intrigues San Francisco CPA Jim Messenger. Unfulfilled himself, Jim feels a kinship with her—and later, when she commits suicide, he resolves to find out why. His search leads him to Beulah, a middle-of-nowhere mining town in the Nevada desert, where hatreds run deep, where secrets are as venomous as a rattlesnake bite, and where a stranger asking too many questions might inexplicably disappear. Still, in this dusty, barren landscape, Jim feels completely alive. And he’s not going anywhere until he uncovers the truth, even if it rips the whole town apart. Richly atmospheric and peopled with achingly human characters, Blue Lonesome is a crime novel as tense and coiled as a rattler ready to strike and as dark and hypnotic as the lonesome desert night
Summary
After a woman that he meets briefly at the Harmony Cafe commits suicide, CPA Jim Messenger uses one clue to uncover a series of lies and a horrible murder that will tear a quiet little town apart
