Crazy Heart is a beautiful book

Washington Times on Crazy Heart

A gripping 20th-century western.

Publishers Weekly (starred review) on With Blood In Their Eyes

Cobb delivers again with a brilliantly conceived novel of the waning days of frontier Arizona. He knows the land and the people and he brings them vividly to life in this tale of crime, pursuit, and adventure where nothing is quite as it seems. It is, as they used to say, a page-turner.
