Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Jack Lee is finishing an intense and solitary three year meditation retreat that began shortly after his acquittal on smuggling charges. During the trial, he had received much unwanted attention, and become something of a celebrity. Now retired from the 'herb' Trade, he re-enters the world, and in short order finds love and begins to envision a new life. Then his best friend and old partner in the Trade is murdered in horrific fashion, an event that shakes him to his core and relegates his newly made plans to secondary status. He is driven to find out who killed his friend, and this leads him back into a world he had vowed to put behind him. And from his first backward step into this world the earth threatens to open beneath his feet and swallow him whole. The character of Jack Lee is revealed to the reader through his actions, rather than through interior monologues, or biographical recitation. Moreover, through those same actions, Jack Lee is revealed to himself in startling fashion.

About the Author:

Henry Joseph wrote six picaresque novels (pi.ca.resque-adj: relating to the adventures of rogues) between 1992 and 1999. The first, 'Bloodwork: The New Rugged Cross', was published in hard cover in the U.S.A. and was broadly acclaimed by critics and fellow writers alike. “. . . the most powerful first novel I've read in years. It's wonderful,” said James Crumley, author of 'The Mexican Tree Duck and Border Snakes', to whom Henry has been favorably compared. “. . . sheer storytelling brio,” declared Frank Wilson in 'The New York Times Book Review'. “. . . riveting . . .compelling. . . foreshadows a long, successful career,” said Bruce Southworth in 'The Drood Review of Mystery'. In France, Cedric Fabre, in 'L'Humanite' said of 'Dinosaur Heaven', the second book in the series, “startling and magnificent, beyond jubilation: we enter a part of ourselves we were unaware of: Joseph is a terrific smuggler of tears.” Yet, through the weirdness of modern publishing, 'Bloodwork' was the only book of Henry Joseph's to be published in English. His next five novels were all published (like the first) in France, with excellent critical review. This strange aberration is now to be corrected, with publication by Astor + Blue Editions of all of the 'Dinosaur Heaven Quintet' series in English. In 2001, Henry Joseph decided to retire from worldly affairs, including writing, focusing instead on a spiritual life of yoga and Buddhism. But now, at least, his acid, moving, and witty storytelling can be enjoyed more widely than before. They are true page turners – a world of outlaws, by which is meant anyone who toys with the idea that they are an outlaw. There may not be as many around as there should be, but maybe reading Henry's novels will change all that . . . [Taken, with apologies, from the Introduction to each work written by Peter Rubie, CEO, FinePrint Literary Management.]
