A Chilling Tale of Vengeance: My Review of David Joy’s New Novel, “The Line That Held Us.”

Author David Joy

“The Line That Held Us” is David Joy’s third crime novel about life in a mountainous region where family roots run deep and where some folks live by a code that puts them outside of the law. The book’s title is in the past tense because in this tale, the line between civilization and savagery doesn’t hold.

It is well told in a voice that is lyrical in its descriptions of the region’s natural beauty and graphic in its depictions of violence and death.  To read the full text of my review for The Associated Press, please click here.
