By Henry Joseph

Jack Lee is completing an excessive and solitary 3 yr meditation retreat that started almost immediately after his acquittal on smuggling fees. throughout the trial, he had acquired a lot undesirable recognition, and turn into anything of a celeb. Now retired from the ‘herb’ alternate, he re-enters the realm, and briefly order unearths love and starts off to examine a brand new lifestyles. Then his ally and previous companion within the alternate is murdered in awful style, an occasion that shakes him to his center and relegates his newly made plans to secondary prestige. he's pushed to determine who killed his pal, and this leads him again right into a international he had vowed to place in the back of him. And from his first backward step into this international the earth threatens to open underneath his ft and swallow him entire. the nature of Jack Lee is published to the reader via his activities, instead of via inside monologues, or biographical recitation. in addition, via those self same activities, Jack Lee is published to himself in startling fashion.

The writer: Henry Joseph wrote six picaresque novels (pi.ca.resque—adj: when it comes to the adventures of rogues) among 1992 and 1999. the 1st, Bloodwork: the recent Rugged pass, was once released in tough conceal within the U.S.A. and used to be largely acclaimed via critics and fellow writers alike.

“. . . the main strong first novel I’ve learn in years. It’s wonderful,” stated James Crumley, writer of The Mexican Tree Duck and Border Snakes, to whom Henry has been favorably in comparison.

“. . . sheer storytelling brio,” declared Frank Wilson within the long island occasions publication assessment. “… riveting …compelling… foreshadows an extended, winning career,” stated Bruce Southworth within the Drood evaluation of Mystery.

In France, Cedric Fabre, in L’Humanite stated of Dinosaur Heaven, the second one ebook within the sequence, “startling and sumptuous, past jubilation: we input part of ourselves we have been blind to: Joseph is a very good smuggler of tears.”

Yet, in the course of the weirdness of recent publishing, Bloodwork used to be the single publication of Henry Joseph’s to be released in English. His subsequent 5 novels have been all released (like the 1st) in France, with very good serious evaluate, yet no longer in English. This unusual aberration is now to be corrected, with ebook by way of Astor + Blue versions of all the Dinosaur Heaven Quintet sequence in English.

In 2001, Henry Joseph determined to retire from worldly affairs, together with writing, focusing as a substitute on a religious lifetime of yoga and Buddhism. yet now, a minimum of, his acid, relocating, and witty storytelling might be loved extra extensively than ahead of. they're real web page turners – a global of outlaws, during which is intended somebody who toys with the concept they're an outlaw. There is probably not as many round as there may be, yet possibly interpreting Henry’s novels will switch all that . . .
