Locke's new novel is a thriller centering around the discovery of a dead body on a Louisiana plantation. Locke's debut novel was "Black Water Rising," a critically acclaimed story that was a finalist in 2010 for an Edgar Award, considered America’s most prestigious award for crime and mystery novels.
When Black Water
Rising debuted in June 2009 it was widely hailed as a promising debut
for Locke, who based the novel's premise on a real-life incident that
happened to her father. Black Water Rising told the story of a civil
rights activist turned lawyer who saves a woman from drowning on the
bayou -- setting forth a murder investigation that ensnares him.
Three years later
Locke will launch The Cutting Season on Sept. 18, when it will be
available in bookstores across the USA. It's also getting sold at the HarperCollins
website as well as at Amazon
and other online retailers.
