review 1: Yes, this is about the Delta, and some of the people who live there. One, born to privilege, is Jack Branch who decides to teach at the local high school. He concocts a course on Evil, where he lectures about certain historical figures, and then assigns his students to write about a nefarious figure which is their favorite. One boy, it seems, had a father who killed a local teenage girl, earning the sobriquet, the Coed Killer. Naturally, the boy choses his father as the subject, and ingratiates Jack's father in doing so.
review 2: I loved this book right up until the ending. All the suspense Cook builds up concerning Eddie leads to a dull, predictable conclusion. The "The Book of Days" story line seemed unnecessary and came out of the blue. The story was in
... moreteresting enough without the soap opera-type twist. Overall, it's a good book, despite the end. The writing is descriptive in an interesting way and the flow was smooth for the most part. less

Stilted writing. Unrelentingly bleak. With a painfully sad, depressing and disturbing ending.
Picked it up 'cause I liked the cover. Turned out books not so hot.
I really like Thomas Cook books and this one is no exception.
I liked this book. It had a nice flow. An ominous tone.
Fantastic! Rich and surprising!!
