Comparisons are odious - particularly in the Arts. But J. Todd Scott is the best new author that I have read in a decade. His tone is stark, economical, with pitch-perfect dialogue. Cormac McCarthy does come to mind. Or Larry McMurtry. The characters breathe authenticity; the plot engages. What a pleasure to encounter great writing in this genre...doesn't happen often.
And T. Ryder Smith, as narrator, makes West Texas come alive - the right man with the right author.
Wish I had picked up, initially, Scott's first, "The Far Empty". But no matter. "High White Noon" stands quite nicely on its own.
It would appear that audio book fans have a new author with which they can't go wrong....
What a great sequel to the Big Empty. This is so well written and characters developed so lifelike that you feel you are right in on the plot and the action. The narration only adds to the book. I hope this new author has more to create for us. J. Todd Scott is on my “must always read” list.
