Editor Rejections like these kept me believing…

“Weaving a mystery that both is smart and complicated, Lindemuth immediately drew me into the complex world of this sleepy town with a secret. He performs a sort of narrative acrobatics, shaping his story through several character’s voices–it’s both ambitious and impressive, as he writes convincingly from several unique first-person point of views.”

“Mr. Lindemuth’s ambitious attempts to probe into the darker recesses of the human psyche juxtaposed with the gritty eloquence of the writing made for a disturbing, but nonetheless intriguing read.  He masters the claustrophobic, confessional intimacy that draws the reader in an uncomfortable, but compelling, embrace, and this sort of reminded me of one of the Coen brothers’ earlier movies: the crushing landscape, the regional affectations, the raw emotions in the bleakest of circumstances with a dash of black humor.”

“I was pulled into this novel immediately and the conceit is quite clever — the revolving narrators, the single-day premise, etc. I even liked the sheriff, although it was against my better judgment since the author does a good job of making him despicable, even if he is a fun character to read.”
………………………………………………………..
“Astonishing, powerful and fierce.  It reads like a Bible tale told by an angry god on a bender, and I mean that in the most admiring of ways.  Clayton continues to baffle me with how blunt and concisely he can sum up a character and give that character impact.”
