Descrizione prodotto

L'autore

David L. Bradley left the blue-collar world in his mid-forties to enroll in college and indulge his love for digging into the past. Nowadays, when not making documentary films about the American South or teaching kids how to make movies, he writes novels and screenplays set against her history. He lives in Atlanta with his wife, his two children, a dog, a cat, and a hundred squirrels. His hobbies are studiously avoiding hobbies and collecting wrinkles. He speaks fluent Southern, and he is a honors graduate of Vacation Bible School, having attended from 1966 until 1971.

5.0 su 5 stelle Excellent History/Mystery that has potential to be a blockbuster 18 novembre 2016
Di Eleanor Cook - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is a book that I would characterize as a “History/Mystery” which is a type of fiction that is appreciated by and popular with many. Bradley does an excellent job weaving real history into a fictional plot and the action and characters are great. The only aspect of the book that seems a little tedious (as history/mysteries can occasionally be) is all the detail about how surveying is accomplished. Readers should feel no guilt if they glaze past some of these details – and yet the information about how surveying is accomplished is critical to the story line so don’t skip all of it -- it actually is pretty interesting and informative. Just sometimes there is a bit too much of it. Aside from that, the history and the story line follows logically with exceptional detail in a good way. What makes this piece of fiction special is the character development. All the characters are strong, both good and evil characters and they strike the reader as authentic. There are many surprising twists to the plot. Also, I must offer a disclaimer: I know the author personally although it has been some years ago since we were acquainted and just recently I have discovered his writings. This book should be in every Georgia public library! Highly recommended.

5.0 su 5 stelle Aces and eights...the dead hand wins! 24 settembre 2014
Di Rick - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Funny...I kept thinking there'd be a poker game, or a creepy dessicated monkey's paw
somewhere in this story. This book taught me many a strange thing I did not know, but
one of the most interesting ones ended up being the title itself! Very sly Mr. Author. I dig.

And by the way, who can fail to end up loving a story with a long dead heroine drawn
in vivid color and a modern day hero who seems to have stepped out of a 40's film
noir? The former is so thoroughly modern she makes the proverbial Millie seem like a
pioneer woman, and the latter a social justice minded Sam Spade hired by ghosts!

In short, a nice tight original story that had me guessing right to the end, all
filled with interesting bits of knowledge about surveying and local history. (I had
to look up the Trans-Oconee Republic. Brilliant! It put me in mind of the equally true story
about the Baron of Arizona.) Old Harry was right when he said: "The only thing new in
the world is the history you don't know." The evil grasp of greed is nothing new.

Dr. King once said that the arc of the moral universe bends towards justice.
I like to think thats true too. Thanks for a fun and informative bit of
escapism. I look forward to tagging along with Addie for another adventure!

5.0 su 5 stelle History with a paranormal twist 23 settembre 2014
Di Kindle Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

It is 4:13 a.m. as I write this review. I have just finished The Dead Hand of Sweeney County after having read all day and most of the night. Dead Hand is the story of a man who must uncover century old secrets to protect a land trust from those who would steal it from the rightful heirs...whoever that might be. Murder, ghosts, family secrets...it sounds as if this should be a gothic novel, but it isn't. Written from a distinctly masculine point of view, it includes details about surveying that would also interest those in the field. I enjoyed the characters, both the living and the dead. SPOILER:. he should lose girlfriend if there is a sequel. Trust me.
5.0 su 5 stelle Memorable Story ~ Excellent Writing ~ Thoroughly Enjoyable Read 18 settembre 2014
Di Kindle Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The Dead Hand of Sweeney County is an excellent novel with an engaging story I won't soon forget. Addison Kane is a character so memorable he will stay with me for a long while. The best and the worst of the south is revealed in a story that immerses the reader in the authenticity of a small town southern reality that remained deeply divided along racial lines long after the civil war, the courageous people who led the way to crossing those lines with hope and dignity and the small minded people who resisted the cultural evolution in the south. Sharp storytelling brings characters to life beautifully and leaves the reader pondering the mysteries presented with unpredictable twists that keeps us guessing. Mr. Bradley's wit and humor make for great dialogue and a thoroughly enjoyable read. I found myself pacing my reading allowing only a chapter a day as to let the mystery simmer and savor the story, until at last so engrossed that I stayed awake hours past my bedtime because I just couldn't put down the book till the end. Keep writing Mr. Bradley. I look forward to reading your collected works one day.

5.0 su 5 stelle Addison is possibly the best part of the whole book 19 settembre 2014
Di W C Shepherd - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is quite the murder mystery. But the murder happened a fair pace back. But then, the murder isn't the main source of drama in this southern tale.

Addison is possibly the best part of the whole book, which is enjoyable since he's the main character. Here's a man who works hard for what's he's got, doesn't blame his situation on anyone, and is quick to consider others above himself. Addison's keen eye may come from his copious surveying skills, but that doesn't make him any less a forensic detective.

Bradley weaves a lush world for Addison and the reader. It is easy to get drawn in and carried away with the narrative tide. Plus, you can't really beat the price.
