The Long Night of Winchell Dear by Robert James Waller

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Long Night of Winchell Dear The steady tick of an aged Regulator wall clock and the squeak of an overhead fan turning slowly are soft but insistent counting down the night while the high desert thrums like a half remembered Victrola song The sounds are below the consciousness of Winchell Dear an old time gambler a Texas poker player on the southern circuit as he waits for something something vague that his life of chance tells him is evil and moving his way He has gassed and oiled the Cadillac and adjusts the pistol in his right boot then plays one of the six fiddle tunes he knows thinking back to his good days with Lucinda Miller Alone he waits in his remote ranch house while just outside an acquaintance named Luther hunts unblinking and of nervous temperament and moving through yellow primrose bending in the night wind .

In Diablo Canyon a distant part of Winchell Dear s ranch Peter Long Grass squats by a campfire contemplating the profile he saw moving along the ridge of Guapa Mountain an hour ago thinking about the gambler s housekeeper Sonia Dominguez about the small quiet world he has fashioned far from civilization and what undefined presence might now be threatening it He gathers his tools and begins to run across the desert floor .

And boring toward all of them is a cream colored Lincoln Continental with two men aboard Traveling from Los Angeles on a mission they ve been given they are professionals cool and implacable at the start but becoming steadily more confused by the strange landscape they are passing through Forty minutes from their task they ready themselves while a kitchen wall clock ticks its way through the long night of Winchell Dear .

The Long Night of Winchell Dear finds master storyteller Robert James Waller at his best as he takes us through the wind and dust of the high desert mountains into the shadowy world of high stakes poker fought in the back rooms of Amarillo and Little Rock and headlong toward the book s stunning finale of chaotic terror where an unexpected hero emerges .
