"South, America" reviewed in San Antonio Express-News-- "gritty volume of Southern noir"

South, America gets another fine review in the San Antonio Express-News:

“...suspense and drama in this gritty volume of Southern noir….The backdrop of pre-Katrina New Orleans is perfect for this novel. Davis paints it in tones that show an abiding admiration for the place and its people, and a respect for its enigmatic beauty.” — Yvette Benavides, San Antonio Express-News

"South, America" reviewed in The Austin Chronicle--"New Orleans noir steeps the reader in Southern atmosphere, history, and violence"

Need some good summer reading? The Austin Chronicle's Mike King recommends South, America in its July Fourth "Lone Star (In)Justice" listing of top crime fiction:

"Rod Davis' new thriller is labeled 'A Jack Prine Novel,' and introduces its world-weary hero, savvy and muscular enough to carry on his back what promises to be an engaging Southern noir series… Like the coy comma in the book's title that redetermines its meaning, the novel proceeds by indirection and sly tangent, through sudden explosions of violence into meditations on Southern history and its persistent burdens on the present.”
