Larry McMurtry “The eastern sky was red as coals in a forge, lighting up the flats along the river. Dew had wet the million needles of the chaparral, and when the rim of the sun edged over the horizon the chaparral seemed to be spotted with diamonds. A bush in the backyard was filled with little rainbows as the sun touched the dew… The sun spread reddish-gold light through the shining bushes, among which a few goats wandered, bleating. Even when the sun rose above the low bluffs to the south, a layer of light lingered for a bit at the level of the chaparral, as if independent of its source. The the sun lifted clear, like an immense coin. The dew quickly died, and the light that filled the bushes like red dirt dispersed, leaving clear, slightly bluish air.” (1) 1

險路

Cormac McCarthy Set in the barren lands of Southwestern Texas, McCarthy’s novel about a drug exchange gone wrong and the man who found all of the money is dark, thrilling, and is, like most of his other novels, steeped in the language and mood of apocalypse. Though most know the story for the best-picture-winning adaptation of it by the Coen brothers, there is little that equals the sharpness and pace of McCarthy’s prose.(2)

This 2005 novel by Cormac McCarthy takes place along the Mexican-U.S. border in 1980. It follows the catastrophic chain of events that occur after a curious hunter stops to investigate an abandoned pickup truck that is surrounded by violently wounded dead bodies. In the back of the pickup truck, he finds $2 million and heroin—and takes it. (3)  

在這法條、紀律、正義淪喪的世界,面對毫無道理、緣由不明的兇徒、惡意和殺戮行為,我們能否保有足夠的善念去抵擋?能否以絕對的勇氣來保護所愛的人?
羅倫,一個如同你我的凡人,難以抵抗誘惑,時常想與上天一賭自己的運氣;齊哥,一個原則分明、堅持殺戮也有其哲學思辯的變態殺手,所到之處不留活口。
一絲善念演變成難以挽回的錯誤,一場獵殺之戰就此在美墨邊境上演。
老警長貝爾即使力不從心,卻無法拋棄一心想守護的人民。孤單無援的他能否穿透深沉恐怖的血幕,將善念的火炬傳予後人?  (博客來)
