"As Watson reminds us, corruption and cruelty survive through their uncanny ability to take on new shapes."
--Laura Lippman, author of "I'd Know You Anywhere"
"I am a huge fan of Sterling Watson's writing, and take it from me: "Suitcase City" is arguably his best novel to date. I began reading and did not look up again until the very last page, so taken was I by its twists and turns, its explorations of race and honor and the love a father has for his daughter. Turn off your phone, lock your door, and dive into "Suitcase City.""
--Ann Hood, author of "The Obituary Writer"
Praise for Sterling Watson's "Fighting in the Shade"
"Brilliant, fearless. . . . A book as gripping and unforgettable as any in recent memory."
--Dennis Lehane, author of "Mystic River"
"Honor, loyalty, even life and death form the core of this wrenching story."
--"Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)
"High school football mixes with "Faust" in this blitz of a novel."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
A man gets himself into a little bit of trouble, then a little bit more, then a lot. And then his whole world becomes a nightmare. How does he get himself out of this mess of his own creation? The answer involves the end of an extramarital affair, reconciliation with a daughter he has neglected, and a deadly encounter with a man who comes out of the past bearing bad news and the keys to a new life. Set in Tampa, Florida, in the late 1980s, "Suitcase City" captures the glitter of the high life and the steamy essence of low places in the Cigar City. As always, Sterling Watson tells his story in prose that sings.
