The sun is rising over Moat County, Florida, when Sheriff Thurmond Call is found on the highway, gutted like an alligator. A local redneck is tried, sentenced, and set to fry. Then Ward James, hotshot investigative reporter for the Miami Times, returns to his rural hometown with a death row femme fatale who promises him the story of the decade. She's armed with explosive evidence, aiming to free - and meet - her convicted 'fiance'. With Ward's disillusioned younger brother Jack as their driver, they barrel down Florida's back roads and seamy places in search of The Story, racing flat out into a shocking head-on collision between character and fate as truth takes a back seat to headline news.

Hip, hard-boiled and filled with memorable eccentrics ... The Paperboy burns with the phosphorescent atmosphere of betrayal. --Time
A wise and fascinating tale well told. --Entertainment Weekly
