A big, hulking, half-Maori hunk of potential violence, the nonetheless bookish ISAIAH COLERIDGE always fantasized about being a Chandleresque kinda private eye, but working as a thug for the Alaskan mob didn't seem to be the right way to get there. Until he has a "misunderstanding" of sorts with a local made man, and barely escapes with his life.
He flees to New York's Hudson Valley where he finds new employment as a farmhand, hoping to keep a low profile, but that's endangered when he indulges his P.I. wet dreams and volunteers to help find a local girl who's disappeared, in Blood Standard (2018), an over-boiled but stylish and very promising crime fiction debut by horror writer Laird Barron.
