Writing That Takes You There . . .
Whether it is racing to catch a speeding freight train, trekking the remotest reaches of the Andes, reporting on a presidential inauguration, or working the back wards of the country’s largest State Hospital, Davis’s writing always puts you right in the thick of it.
With a unique style, often compared to John Steinbeck and Jack London, that Kirkus Review calls “. . . powerful; beautifully written, well-observed and effective.” Davis invites you on adventures, real and fictional, that will stay with you long after the last page is turned.
Treading the same wards and grounds that Jack London brought to life fifty years earlier in Told in the Drooling Ward, Davis has captured a piece of history and humanity you will not soon forget.
What if you had just 24 hours to tell the story of the last 24 hours of a condemned man’s life – one chapter per hour?
That is the challenge Davis took on, and A Matter of Time is the extraordinary, one-of-a-kind result. A cautionary tale written not long after 9/11, this relentless, page-turning look at a near future where our country has traded security for freedom, will keep you on the edge of your seat as the hero, and the writer, try to beat the clock.
