Bluebottle
No.5 in the Lew Griffin Series
by James Sallis

ABOUT THE BOOK

As Lew Griffin leaves a New Orleans music club with an older white woman he has just met, someone fires a shot and Lew goes down. When he comes to, Griffin discovers that most of a year has gone by since that night. Who was the woman? Which of them was the target? Who was the sniper? Somewhere in the Crescent City - and in the white supremacist movement crawling through it - there's an answer to the questions left by that shot that echoed through the night. But to get to it, Griffin is going to have to work with the only people offering help, people he knows he should avoid.


CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR JAMES SALLIS

James Sallis is a superb writer
- The Times

Sublime, soulful, and essential
- Mike Stafford, Bookgeeks

If Camus wrote pulp, he'd read like Sallis
- Andrew Donaldson, Times South Africa

Sallis is a fastidious man, intelligent and widely read. There's nothing slapdash or merely strategic about his work ... peculiar and visionary.
- Iain Sinclair, London Review of Books

An immensely rewarding read
- Paul Kane, @JildySauce

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR BLUEBOTTLE

Poetic, complex and multidimensional, James Sallis' crime novels about New Orleans detective Lew Griffin… are unlike any you are likely to crack open
- Los Angeles Times

Sallis's voice is unique among mystery writers, and this novel, like previous ones in the series, is unforgettable.
- Publishers Weekly [read the full review]

Richly atmospheric, haunting, utterly compelling, the Lew Griffin novels are really cool. James Sallis is an outstanding crime writer - an outstanding writer period
- Frances McDormand

The New Orleans backdrop - gumbo, okra and the strains of jazz circa the 1960s - all add up to a rich gumbo of its own, nicely set off by the odd Lew Griffin and the quirky jumps in time.
- MGS, Barcelona Review [read the full review]

it is hard to think of another contemporary writer who has so brilliantly captured the shifting sand that is memory
- Gerald Houghton, The Edge Magazine [read the full review]
