Shes only been out for a day when she accepts a strange job offer from the head of a Christian political advocacy group. He wants her to track down a missing ex-con named Alexis. Although no one knows where Alexis has gone, it seems like everyone in Arkansas is looking for her-from a rich televangelist running for Congress to the governors dirty tricks man. When Bennett finds the troubled young woman, she has to decide whether to hand her over to the highest bidder or help her escape from the most powerful men in the state.* * * * *Keep an eye on Jake Hinkson. Hes taking the notion of the sacred and the profane to an entirely new level in noir.-Lou Boxer, co-founder of NoirConThe Big Ugly is a jolt to complacency, a spur to the psyche -- a novel that starts simply enough, but expands and suddenly consumes the reader. Jake Hinkson is a master at creating, not characters, but people -- and then putting them through Hell.-Steve Weddle, author of Country HardballJake Hinkson is a thunderhead on the horizon of crime fiction, and you can take The Big Ugly as confirmation that this storm isnt going to blow over any time soon. Batten down the hatches, take shelter and prepare for nasty weather. My favorite kind.-Jedidiah Ayres, author of Peckerwood
