    Call it what you will mystery, country noir, suspense, crime Pale Horses is an exceptional piece of literature, terrifying and touching and infused with an emotional wallop that I was not quite expecting The novel profiles three of the most fascinating characters I have encountered in recent memory, told in alternate sections from these varying viewpoints We have Hal Kendrick, the county sheriff investigating the murder of a young woman, who is dealing with the beginning stages of Alzheimer s Da [...]

    Pale Horses is a country noir of the blackest kind, offset with strong bittersweet undertones The story charts the intersections of three principal characters over the course of a murder investigation an aging sheriff with Alzheimer s, an unbalanced deputy with a drug habit and a Christina Ricci obsession, and a former marine haunted by his time in Iraq and Afghanistan All three characters are very well drawn and developed as the story progresses In particular, Hal Kendrick is a wonderfully obse [...]

    I was really glad to see some good reviews for this book Nate Southard, who is a horror writer, and usually wrongly classified as a writer of extreme horror, is a great story teller Pale Horses is a great story A story about people in untenable situations and what happens to them when they are placed in the pressure cooker of a plot created by Southard Hal, the Sheriff, is a character whom I will remember for some time to come And this novel again proves that no matter the genre a writer tends t [...]
