 說到法治與秩序,東德州自成一套規則——黑人德州騎警達倫.馬修對這點再清楚不過。身為黑人,在這個孤星州成長是五味雜陳的經驗,他是家族中第一個盡力遠離德州的人,直到義務呼喚他回鄉。但當他的歸根之情陷他於險境,他踏上五十九號公路前往拉爾克,那裡的兩宗謀殺案——一位是芝加哥的黑人律師,一位是當地的白人女性——搗翻了恨意的蜂窩。達倫必須解決兩宗刑案——並在過程中拯救自己——以免拉爾克醞釀已久的種族隱憂爆發。這部鄉間黑色小說充滿著東德州獨特的音樂、色彩與質地,以活潑而當代的筆調,描寫種族與正義的交鋒。

書評

 "A quick course in plotting and nimble characterizations rooted in a vividly evoked setting"―Nicole LamyNew York Times Book Review

"An emotionally dense and intricately detailed thriller, roiling with conflicting emotions steeped in this nation's troubled past and present. . . . A rich sense of place and relentless feeling of dread permeate Attica Locke's heartbreakingly resonant new novel about race and justice in America. . . . Bluebird, Bluebird is no simple morality tale. Far from it. It rises above "left and right" and "black and white" and follows the threads that inevitably bind us together, even as we rip them apart."―James EndrstUSA Today

"Gripping, suspenseful and gut-wrenching . . . I've never bought the notion of the Great American Novel. I think when literary historians look back, they'll realize this time had many, but if Attica Locke's Bluebird Bluebird isn't on the list, I'm coming back to haunt them. . . . This is a layered portrait of a black man confronting his own racial ambivalence and ambition told with a pointed and poignant bluesy lyricism. . . . Locke's novel is America 'telling on itself.' Listen up."―Carole BarrowmanMilwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Attica Locke's terrific Bluebird, Bluebird (Mulholland) simmers with racial tensions . . . a story told with Locke's crystal-clear vision and pleasurably elemental prose."―Seattle Times

"In Bluebird, Bluebird Attica Locke had both mastered the thriller and exceeded it. Ranger Darren Mathews is tough, honor-bound, and profoundly alive in corrupt world. I loved everything about this book."―Ann Patchett

"Few contemporary writers have portrayed black Southern life with as much wit and heart-pounding drama as Attica Locke. . . . A dazzling work of rural noir that throws into question whether justice can be equally served on both sides of the race line."―Amy BradyLos Angeles Times

"Locke pens a poignant love letter to the lazy red-dirt roads and Piney Woods that serve as a backdrop to a noir thriller as murky as the bayous and bloodlines that thread through the region. . . . Locke shows off her chops as a superb storyteller. . . . She is adept at crafting characters who don't easily fit the archetypes of good and evil, but exist in the thick grayness of humanness, the knotty demands of loyalties and the baseness of survival. Locke holds up the mirror of the racial debate in America and shows us how the light bends and fractures what is right, wrong and what simply is the way it is--but perhaps not as it should be."―Jaundréa ClayHouston Chronicle

"Powerful . . . Locke is a master of plot who's honed her craft. . . . The deepest pleasures to be found in Bluebird, Bluebird, though, are in her renderings of those who've loved and lost but still want to believe in the world's benevolence."―Leigh HaberO., The Oprah Magazine

"I've never bought the notion of the Great American Novel. I think when literary historians look back, they'll realize this time had many, but if Attica Locke's"Bluebird Bluebird" (Mulholland) isn't on the list, I'm coming back to haunt them."―Carole E. BarrowmanThe Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
