The Hot Country Free read í 104 review Ò PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ö Robert Olen Butler review The Hot Country From the Pulitzer Prize and National Magazine Award winning Robert Olen Butler comes his very first crime novel an epic historical tale of war love intrigue and espionage Christopher Marlowe Cobb known as “Kit” is an intrepid American newspaper war correspondent who travels to Mexico in 1914 to report on the country’s civil war the American invasion of Vera Cruz and the controversial presidency of Victoriano Huerta El Chacal The Jackal Covering the w. This book is subtitled A Christopher Marlowe Cobb Thriller but in truth it moves at a pretty languid pace until the last uarter of the book or so That is not to suggest that it s a bad book by any means only that it does not race along at the pace one would normally expect of a thrillerChristopher Cobb is war correspondent for a Chicago newspaper who finds himself in revolutionary Mexico covering the American occupation of Vera Cruz in 1914 Mexico is a country in turmoil President Wilson s intentions are not exactly clear and the American invasion does not sit well with the Mexican populace Shortly after American forces occupy Vera Cruz a German ship appears in the harbor Cobb employs a young pickpocket to watch the ship and under the cover of night a mysterious German official disembarks Cobb is naturally curious and senses an important story He resolves to tail the German and discover his intentions Along the way Cobb becomes enad of a beautiful Mexican sharpshooter and before long he finds himself on a perilous journey into the heart of the Mexican Revolution that will dramatically affect his own life and which may change the course of historyThis is an interesting tale and Christopher Cobb makes a sympathetic protagonist It will appeal especially to those who enjoy historical fiction and who have an interest in this period of Mexican and American history

Politics transportation and informationThe story of Pancho Villa and his band of miscreant rebels seems timely mostly because of the behind the scenes meddling from other countries The way Butler tells Pancho s story it s filled with mystery excitement cross and double cross There s also lots of history or perhaps revisionist history included Don t miss the parts about the current modes of travel Of course there were horses and carriages and railways influenced the action Most exciting was the recent invention and use of the airplane It was also a time when the newspaper was the most prominent and innovative means of disseminating what was happening in the world Politics transportation and information are key factors in Hot Country Pancho is set on taking control of his native Mexico along with his loyal foot soldiers however this is complicated by the struggle between the US and Germany both countries are set on using the Mexican drama to further their own political agendas The US as such a close neighbor is concerned about defending its borders Christopher Marlowe Cobb is a newspaperman who goes to report the drama but winds up at the heart of the action The story is filled with spies mercenaries thwarted personal and political ambition war and murder And it s all placed against the backdrop of the imminent war in EuropeButler always writes well and Hot Country is no exception though for my taste there were far too many battle and fight sections but to be fair there s no way to write realistically about Villa s revolution without bloodshed The parts concerning Cobb s love interest and his relationship with his actress mother were top rate The descriptions of Pancho and the main German protagonist were also well done It was fun to see Butler write an adventure storyThis review is based on an e galley provided by the publishers355

I don t often like books that win big prizes like the Pulitzer or writers who win the prizes Too often I find that prize winning writers don t know how to tell a good story that they are too in love with their own voice to put the story and the character first So it was with some trepidation despite being interested in the plot and setting of The Hot Country that I picked up Robert Olen Butler s book My doubt was uickly dispelled The Hot Country is a fast paced historical thriller that introduces the character of Christopher Marlowe Cobb a Chicago newspaperman The setting is Mexico the time 1914 when the fires of revolution lit the country At his best Butler writes like Cormac McCarthy but without McCarthy s affection we don t need no stinking punctuation At times Butler writes like a modern day Hemingway Hells bells that s high praise for any writer So whether you are attracted to Butler s prize winning credentials or repelled by them read this book It s worthy of an award
