my new shoes.

"." You know what they're

saying to me?

They're saying here there's nobody's mark.

A guy with his head on his shoulders

an eye to the future.

Somebody who knows how to

take care of business.

Take care of what?


What kind of boots are those?

You mean my ventilated

gold diggers?

I save those for

special occasions.

How do you know this one isn't?

Which one?

This one.

I never said it wasn't.

I'm Florence.

The way it works now is you

say what you want me to call you.


For Samuel?

For Samson.

Strong guy got

done in by Delilah.

I've never heard that.

You ain't read the Bible?

Mine's the next stop.

Is that Willimette?

Oto, Willimette's a whole

different neighbourhood.

Where you from then?

South a ways.

You ain't giving away

no secrets, are you?

Go ahead.

Ain't that why anybody

talks to strangers?

I figured people got a

lot of reasons to.

Have you got business

in Willimette?

Later I do.

What are you gonna do till then?

Eat something.

There's a pizza joint

right below my place.

They only got take out,

but it's pretty good.

My ex left a few things

when he split.

0h yeah?

For your mysterious business

in Willimette?

Like how I ain't got nobody...

except an ex?

I had a dog.

The guy I left it with

when I was in jail said it got run

over by lumber truck.

How long was you in jail for?

Four years.

It was medium big.

Looked a lot like a

Border Collie...

some Sheppard in it.

Did you treat her good Samson?

Yeah, till I left it with who

I told you about I did.

You think he didn't die

how he said it did?

I think I trusted a good dog

Matthew F. Jones

Matthew F. Jones, is an American novelist and screenwriter who grew up in rural upstate New York and currently lives in Charlottesville, Virginia. His novels have been translated into various foreign languages and several times have been named on best novels of the year lists. Three of his novels, A Single Shot, Deepwater and Boot Tracks, have been made into major motion pictures. He has taught creative writing at a number of colleges and universities, including Randolph Macon College, Lynchburg College and the University of Virginia. He grew up on a horse and dairy farm in rural upstate New York and currently lives in Charlottesville, Virginia. Patrick Andersen, in a Washington Post review of Jones’s 2006 novel Boot Tracks, termed the phrase ‘literate noir’ to describe the tense, psychological nature of Joes work. And in a starred review of Jones’s 1999 psychological thriller Deepwater, Booklist critic Bill Ott described Jones as a ‘leading contemporary author of country noir, a subgenre whose roots trace back to James M. Cain’s Post Man Always Rings Twice.’ A film version of Deepwater was released under the same name in 2006, starring Lucas Black, Peter Coyote and Leslie Anne Warren. Jones’s own screenplay of his 1996 novel "A Single Shot" was made into a film of the same name in 2012 and released in 2013. The film version of the novel stars Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright, and Kelly Reilly. more…
