Description
This genre-bending collection proves that not only is Karin Slaughter "one of the best crime novelists in America" (Washington Post), she's one of today's very best writers-period. From the hallucinatory noir novella "Go Deep" to the twisted short stories "Necessary Women" and "Remmy Rothstein Toes the Line," this collection showcases the New York Times bestselling author's dark humor, limitless imagination, and masterly command of voice and character.Go DeepGrowing up dirt poor, Charlie Lam worked hard to make something of himself, and now a lot of people depend on him: sixty-eight employees at his Atlanta auto dealership, eleven shiftless siblings, an ungrateful wife, a spoiled daughter, and a shameless girlfriend. Who could blame him for wanting a little extra? The arrangement is supposed to be simple, but soon Charlie is in deeper trouble than he could have imagined. Necessary Women. In a border town between Georgia and Alabama, in a tiny house, a fourteen-year-old girl watches her thirty-year-old mother die. Her father, a long-haul trucker who is away for weeks at a time, is absent. A week before she died, the girl's mother warned her not to make the same mistakes she did. Now her father tells her she's the woman of the house and must do all the necessary duties of a woman: cleaning, cooking, laundry. But she won't end up like her mother-no matter what. Remmy Rothstein Toes the Line. An intrepid adjudicator of world records, Mindy Patel has met many strange people. But they're no match for the Swampers of the Georgia bayou. Mindy has braved the oppressive August heat in search of Remmy Rothstein, the "Cajun Jew." If the photos are accurate, she might be about to certify Remmy as the world-record holder for longest tongue in the world. But even Remmy's half-brother-the world's only one-legged, albino, Jewish African American-can't prepare Mindy for an eyeful of Remmy: a man who measures up to his singular reputation in ways that will change the course of Mindy's life.
