James Sallis Eye of the Cricket 1 The storm came in over the lake, bowing the shaggy heads of young trees and snapping branches off the old, blowing out of Metairie where the white folks live. In my own backyard a hundred-year-old water oak at last gave in, splitting in half as though a broadsword had struck it, opening like a book. I sat with my back bent over the worn mahogany curb of the bar. A glass of bourbon sat before me, its outer surface smeared and greasy to the touch. A young roach ...

A hint of movement in the side of his eye as they passed a short side street-and the first one was there. He spun, slamming his foot and the whole of his body weight against the outside of the mans right knee, and heard it give. By the time the man was down, that same foot hit his throat. He shuddered twice, trying to ...

Cypress Grove James Sallis Chapter One I heard the jeep a half mile off. It came up around the lake, and when it hit the bend, birds took flight. They boiled up out of the trees, straight up, then, as though heavy wind had caught them, veered abruptly, all at once, sharp right. Most of those trees had been standing forty or fifty years.
