Synopsis: In 1954 Mississippi, Jack Branch returns to his father?s Delta estate, Great Oaks, to perform an act of noblesse oblige: teaching at the local high school.While conducting a class on evil throughout history, Jack is shocked to discover that his unassuming student Eddie is the son of the Coed Killer, a notorious local murderer. Jack feels compelled to mentor the boy, encouraging Eddie to examine his father?s crime and using his own good name to open the doors that Eddie?s lineage can?t. But when the investigation turns in an unexpected direction, Jack finds himself questioning Eddie?s motives and his own.

As the deadly consequences of Jack?s actions fall inescapably into place, Thomas H. Cook masterfully reveals the darker truths that lurk in the recesses of small-town lives and in the hearts of well-intentioned men.

From the Back Cover: "I was badly shaped by my good fortune and so failed to see the darkness and the things that darkness hides."In 1954 Mississippi, Jack Branch returns to his father s Delta estate, Great Oaks, to perform an act of noblesse oblige: teaching at the local high school.While conducting a class on evil throughout history, Jack is shocked to discover that his unassuming student Eddie is the son of the Coed Killer, a notorious local murderer. Jack feels compelled to mentor the boy, encouraging him to examine his father s crime and using his own good name to open the doors that Eddie s lineage can t. But when the investigation turns in an unexpected direction, Jack finds himself questioning Eddie s motives and his own.

As the deadly consequences of Jack s actions fall inescapably into place, Thomas H. Cook masterfully reveals the darker truths that lurk in the recesses of small-town lives and in the hearts of well-intentioned men. "Thomas H. Cook never disappoints. With Master of the Delta he elevates the game once again. Beautifully written and heavily muscled with character and intrigue, this novel is a tour de force. Nobody tells a story better than Thomas H. Cook!"--Michael Connelly"[Cook's] elegant prose, tragic characters and timeless themes of economic conflict, father-son disappointment and girl-boy turmoil makes for a book that is nearly perfect."--Kansas City Star"The plot is laced with unexpected twists, and Cook's writing is deeply atmospheric."--Associated Press"
