Great First Novel...but
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 18 years ago
This is a wonderful first movel..and I can't wait to read Black Tide, but the author and/or his editors need to be a little more careful. In Dead Sand, the main character seems to be constantly changing his clothes because of copious sweating...enough with the sweat, already. Second, in this novel, the author twice refers to a police parking pass, the second time as if he were telling the reader for the first time. A little more attention to detail, please?

"Dead Sand" is the first book by Dubois that I've read but it won't be the last. What a treat to stumble across a new-to-me mystery writer who is literate & conjures such believable characters, peopling a well-plotted book.The author creates a real sense of place - a term much bandied about & often not really true. This one 'puts you there'. I highly recommend it.
