Read Lullaby Road Lullaby Road Free download ò E-book, or Kindle E-pub Only by oddballs fugitives and those looking to escape the world So when local truck driver Ben Jones finds an abandoned mute Hispanic child at a lonely gas station along his route far from any semblance of proper civilization he knows something has gone. You really need to read the author s first book The Never Open Desert Diner before reading Lullaby Road because there are a lot of references to things that happened in the first book and I think that it would be frustrating not to know what all those references mean Frankly I wasn t crazy about the first book which couldn t decide whether it was literary fiction with a few mysterious undertones or a thriller It didn t do either particularly well the beginning was like watching paint dry and when things finally began to happen they just weren t interesting to me The good news is that I enjoyed Lullaby Road a lot Ben Jones is an almost 40 year old JewishNative American orphan raised in Utah by a Mormon couple He s a trucker delivering packages to desert rats hardscrabble ranchers and other assorted exiles who chose to live off 117 He keeps stumbling upon bad situations One morning before he starts his route an acuaintance leaves him a note at a truck stop reuesting that Ben take charge of his small child because of some unspecified danger The child is accompanied by a large dog On the same morning Ben s 18 year old friend and neighbor dumps her 4 month old infant on him so she can go to class Instead of taking the day off from work like any sane person would do Ben piles the whole group into his truck and heads off into a snow storm The author creates wonderful characters and descriptions like the man who has invented a solar powered doghouse complete with reading light Unfortunately they all seem to be armed However he insists on introducing mysteries that get in the way of the character studies at which he excels This book has a hit and run an abandoned child and several murders That s a lot of crime for a town with almost no residents The mysteries are all resolved by the end but I confess that I was flummoxed by the child s story It was too subtle or cryptic for me The bad guy just appeared out of the blue and I have no idea what happened with the kid at the end of the book Some better editing would have helped here and elsewhere in the book as well If you use term desert rat 4 times in 3 pages you ve used it too much I also could have done with fewer vehicle descriptions Ultimately I liked the writing style very much The people felt real and I wanted to know what happened to them I would read by this author but I wish he would skip the mysteries next timeI received a free copy of this book from the publisher

Superior seuel to the author s first novel featuring truck driver Ben Jones The Never Open Desert DinerFor 20 30 pages I felt like putting this book down I d just come off of Ken Bruen s In the Galway Silence and there s hardly anything written in the new century that can rival a Ken Bruen novelSomewhere around page 30 35 something clicked and this book had me hooked tighter than two dogs caughtforgive me my trespassesThis book has the same ambling reader friendly cadence as the first entry in the Ben Jones saga Too many characters to count Some are decent some are bad some are angels disguised Ben s the kind of guy working on his wings as far as that goesThere s a bad guy out on Highway 117 in Utah near the high desert He drives an old cab over White Freightliner an antiue these days but uite the sporty model back in the seventies This bad guy dodges the scales avoids roadblocks and state trooper checkpoints Why he s dodging the law is another mystery What he s hauling is even of a mysteryBut this trucker outlaw has managed to almost kill Ben sideswiping his trailer while passing him at a high rate of speed on an icy highwayThere s also a mysterious cargo Ben Jones finds awaiting him at the last truck stop before descending into the flat desert A huge dog and a kid that the guy Pedro who handles truck tires for the truckers who pass through has left for Ben to carry along with him A note pinned to the kid s coveralls reading Please Take Care Of My Juan I Trust In You BenThings get weirder People get even weirder erWarning sudden and deadly violence erupts every 40 50 pagesRevenge is slow coming if it arrives at all Ben Jones is a philosopher than a gear jamming Mike HammerSoftboiled poetic mystery built upon a foundation of memorable charactersI loved every line of this novel My delivery days were generally spent without the luxury of man made signs and addresses no numbers or arrows or mailboxes or even fences or mile markers My customers liked it that way and lived the roadless dead end life with a kind of fierce passion for isolation that few would want and even fewer would survive for very long For the most part their philosophy was make do or do without and even some essentials especially water when and where it was needed were considered luxuriesDesert trees that go without water for long periods develop a rock hard stringy grain that resists death with a grim and tenacious attachment to survival Old desert rats like George thought such trees were pretty things but a bit too fragile to truly respect As a result in my opinion the desert rats rarely died from doing without If and when they died it was usually from an accidental overdose of stubborness This one is worth searching out Borrow it from a library search eBay buy it new on I don t know what to compare this one to I mentioned the great Harold Adams in my review of the 1st novel by James Anderson Steinbeck ll work too You like Craig McDonald or Frank Gruber this is your kind of mystery novel I ve come to think that the only thing you can count on with people is that they will always be human good and bad usually both and occasionally at the same time

Read Lullaby Road Lullaby Road Free download ò E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ben Jones protagonist of the glowingly reviewed Never Open Desert Diner returns in a devastatingly powerful literary crime novel about parenthood loss and the desert in winterWinter has come to Highway 117 a remote road through the Utah desert trafficked. In Lullaby Road Ben Jones is still making deliveries to the inhabitants of an isolated stretch of Utah desert The people there all seem to be hiding out from something or someone but they are Ben s life and livelihood and they are eually dependent on him The story begins with Ben stopping to buy fuel before beginning his route and finding a young child wearing a note asking Ben to take care of her and Ben being Ben can t refuse As Ben tries to learn the little girl s story and find her father he and the people along his route face misfortunes danger and tragedy But it s not all bleak There are powerful moments of compassion redemption and people rising above their sense of being permanently damaged and hopeless a potential romance and the forging of human connections and making a family Anderson writes unforgettable and richly developed characters and his description of the austere beauty of the desert is brilliantly evocative The haunting image of a child s shoe with lights flashing in the heel has lodged in my brain and heart The Never Open Desert Diner and Lullaby Road are so much than crime fiction much like James Lee Burke s novels and I think Anderson addresses that issue sagely in a recent interview I read a lot of poetry and always have and I find that my love of poetry informs my prose in ways that are distinctive and not often found in crime fiction or fiction in general Still though I try not to go overboard lyrically and keep the focus on the story and the voice of Ben Jones as much as I can I don t think I actually turned to crime and I am not certain my novels can be accurately referred to as crime novels I had a very precarious childhood and young adulthood and crime particularly violence of various kinds was a part of my daily life as a victim and as a witness in that sense crime or crimes as they appear in my novels are a part of life part of the fabric of Ben s life and not the central focus Overall as a novelist I am much concerned with the effect violence has on us directly and indirectly that can manifest itself over time a kind of personal geological time that results in seismic events After a brilliant first novel some authors suffer a sopho slump but James Anderson is certainly not one of them His first novel The Never Open Desert Diner was a book I was telling everyone about and I ll be doing the same with Lullaby Road While it can be read as a stand alone I encourage readers to read The Never Open Desert Diner first both to gain familiarity with the characters and the events that shaped them and because I think nothing Anderson writes should be missedThank you to Crown Publishing and NetGalley for providing an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
