Description
"Jack Branch, scion of a declining southern estate, comes home from college and, as an act of noblesse oblige, becomes a teacher at the public high school. His class, a classics-heavy exploration of the nature of evil, is over the heads of his students, so he kicks off each lecture with a sensational story from history. One student, Eddie Miller, has a sensational history of his own: his father was the locally notorious 'Coed Killer.' Branch decides to mentor Eddie and, fatefully, encourages him to research his father's crime. Readers who enjoy watching good deeds get punished will be spectacularly rewarded as Branch's efforts go horribly awry—in large part because Branch isn't the person he thought he was. The suspense builds slowly but inexorably, helped along with liberal doses of foreboding from Branch, the reminiscing narrator. And, in an ending with near-perfect resonance, we find that the story isn't really whose we've thought it was, either. Cook, an Edgar winner, is known as a crime writer, but his storytelling has grown better and better.... Master of the Delta is a novel about character that just happens to be about crime."—Booklist (starred review)
