Leserkritik

What appears to be a humorous story set in Indiana farm country becomes a thriller with multiple shocking twists. Fans of TV's Dexter might want to try this disquieting book from Scott. Library Journal


“Scott creates one of the most compelling characters in a generation with Father Solomon Lancaster...[and] weaves a rich tapestry that keeps you on your toes up until the last page.” —Patrick Anderson, Modern Horrors


“I could not put this damn book down until I finished it. Gripped me from start to finish….[Scott] truly is one twisted fuck, but don’t take my word for it. The evidence lies within.” —Frank Kemp, SiftPop and Modern Horrors


“Solomon Lancaster is a wonderfully, morally complicated protagonist and often hilarious. You aren’t going to see too many priest/sheriff characters in any medium, a combination that leads to conflicts of interest that can be both comic and tragic.” —Chris Atkinson, co-founder of CinemaSins


“Jeremy Scott delivers his most intimate and powerful story yet with When The Corn Is Waist High...an enthralling story that leaves you guessing until the very last page. A little bit Coen Brothers and a little bit Fincher, this sharp-tack character study disguised as an expertly written murder mystery is a wholly unique thriller from a writer at the top of their game.” Stephen Sean Ford, actor and filmmaker


“Scott’s unvarnished style lures the reader into a sublime sense of comfort with his fascinating and frank descriptions of law enforcement, catholicism, and small town living before twisting the knife with shocking twists and staggering revelations...the story unfolds in unexpected ways, growing ever more chilling while building to a jaw-dropping conclusion. This is a killer who won’t soon be forgotten.” Jenn Adams, Horror Journalist & Podcaster


“Jeremy Scott revels in this edge-of-your-seat tale with experienced glee, clearly leaning on his history of living in the small-town Midwest, knowledge of insulated religious gatherings, and frequent consumption of regional-specific hot dishes. This story will grip you by the wrists from the very start, and you will NOT want it to let go until the final page. Never have I been happier to surrender to whatever ride this mischievous author will take me.” Barrett Share, producer and cohost of the SinCast Podcast


“Jeremy Scott masterfully takes the reader back in time to rural Indiana, where the local Sheriff reconciles his dual roles of law enforcement and local priest all while a killer upsets the harmony of his sleepy farming community. When The Corn Is Waist High lulls you into the sleepy rhythms of Crooked Creek, so when the twists start turning, you won’t be ready for what happens next. Rural Indiana has never felt so dangerous.” Jacob Hopkins, Co-Founder of Modern Horrors
