Whiskey Baron Jon Sealy

South Carolina, 1932. One man’s whiskey empire is on the verge of collapse following two shots from a 12-gauge.

“A potent mash-up of noir, Southern fiction and period novel, set in South Carolina during Prohibition … A near flawless effort from a writer to watch.” —Kirkus, starred review

“What you’d get if Cormac McCarthy and William Faulkner co-wrote the HBO series ‘Boardwalk Empire’ while on an especially inspired, existentially tinged bender.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

“An assured work of literary suspense … Sealy’s finely drawn characters and evocative sense of place and time make this a memorable read, on par with the best of Daniel Woodrell and Ron Rash.” —Library Journal
