Welcome to Heartland America circa right about now, when the union jobs and family farms that kept the white on the picket fences have given way to meth labs, backwoods gunrunners, and bare-knuckle brawling. Frank Bill's southern Indiana is haunted by a deep, abiding sense of place, and Frank Bill's people are men and women pressed to the brink - and beyond. They are survivors, and in Frank Bill's hands, their stories bristle with noir energy. Flat-out fearless and unputdownable, "Crimes in Southern Indiana" is at once a gut punch and a wake-up call - and the announcement of an authentic, original American literary voice we simply can't ignore.

Frank Bill lives and writes in Southern Indiana. CRIMES IN SOUTHERN INDIANA is his first book.Review :
"Good Lord, where in the hell did this guy come from? Hits as hard as an ax handle to the side of the head after you've snorted a nose full of battery acid and eaten a live rattlesnake for breakfast. Seriously, I'm warning you in advance: take your heart medication and strap yourself to your bar stool for one of the wildest damn rides you're ever going to take inside a book." -- Donald Ray Pollock, author of Knockemstiff "Dark, grim, and achingly beautiful. Frank Bill is one of the most original and compelling voices in this new generation of crime writers." -- John Rector, author of The Cold Kiss "Some serious hillbilly-noir that had my ears ringing by the end. Open the first page... and duck." -- Craig Clevenger, author of The Contortionist's Handbook "Take American gothic + Tarantino + 1 cup of human blood. Liquidise in blender. Result: The great stories of Frank Bill" -- Alan Warner
