NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "An eerie and beautiful novel...?ts secrets continue to reveal themselves long after the book has been finished."-The New York Times Book Review The sun is rising over Moat County, Florida, when Sheriff Thurmond Call is found on the highway, gutted like an alligator. A local redneck is tried, sentenced, and set to fry. Then Ward James, hotshot investigative reporter for the Miami Times, returns to his rural hometown with a death row femme fatale who promises him the story of the decade. She's armed with explosive evidence, aiming to free-and meet-her convicted "fiance." With Ward's disillusioned younger brother Jack as their driver, they barrel down Florida's back roads and seamy places in search of The Story, racing flat out into a shocking head-on collision between character and fate as truth takes a back seat to headline news. Now a major motion picture directed by Lee Daniels starring Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, David Oyelowo, and Macy Gray, with John Cusack and Nicole Kidman Praise for The Paperboy "Dexter is a writer who cuts to the bone. There is not a spare word in this searing tale...? A bravura performance by one of America's most original and elegiac voices."-People "Hip, hard-boiled and filled with memorable eccentrics...?iThe Paperboy burns with the phosphorescent atmosphere of betrayal."-Time "A wise and fascinating tale well told."-Entertainment Weekly
