Title Profile & Character Information

The Cutting Season

Annotation
Locke follows up her multiple-prize-nominated debut, Black Water Rising, with a story set in contemporary Louisiana but freighted with implications from the past. A young woman is found with her throat cut on the antebellum plantation Belle Vie. Locals are angry about migrant labor and the corporate takeover of the areas small family farms, but estate manager Caren Gray turns elsewhere for a solution. Fingers crossed for this sophomore effort.
