Pick up the latest from DEA agent and critically acclaimed author J. Todd Scott. This Side of Night continues the story of Big Bend, Texas, sheriff Chris Cherry, who we met in Todd’s debut The Far Empty and followed through High White Sun. Cherry now finds himself caught in an escalating drug cartel war, and he’s not sure he can trust his fellow law enforcement officers.
“In This Side of Night, Mr. Scott demonstrates the Texas-sized writing talents to which his protagonist aspires.” —The Wall Street Journal
“…a fine novel that is suspenseful, action-packed, literary, and thought-provoking.” —Associated Press
“The stellar third volume in Scott’s epic Texas border series (after 2018’s High White Sun) draws its inspiration from a real-life tragedy…Scott, a veteran federal agent, writes with authority and gravitas about complex border issues. Fans of Don Winslow and Cormac McCarthy won’t want to miss this one.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
