Thief Taker, by D.B. Jackson

I'm veering from my normal reviews to shout-out an author and a novel that has been banging around in my head for the last year. Failing my search for Brent Weeks at the WFC 2011 signing event, I stumbled across David B. Coe (aka: D.B. Jackson) sitting at the table where Brent was supposed to be. It was David's sincere 'hello' that first caught my attention, followed immediately by the stunning cover of his novel "Thief Taker." Growing up in Kentucky, my brother and I played with tri-corner hats and Kentucky long-rifle replicas as kids--so I am the target audience for that cover. Two minutes of conversation had me hooked--both on the author and the novel.
