The Man Who Fell From the Sky by Bill Fletcher, Jr.

Bill Fletcher, Jr. has created an astonishingly subtle debut novel, a murder mystery with a cast of characters as memorable as it is idiosyncratic, a story that plunges forward at speed and never pumps the breaks even when the twists and turns threaten to run us off the road, and a strong red thread winding through every page, binding the book together and marking it as a quintessentially American story. Fletcher’s gifts bring Walter Mosely to mind, the unique ability to seduce readers with a spellbinding narrative while grounding it in the most profound social/historical burdens and claims of our times. The Man Who Fell From the Sky is a dazzling tale and a gripping read.
