This classic story of good and evil takes place in the rural American South of 1968. After being released from prison, Glen Davis returns to his hometown only to commit double homicide within forty-eight hours of his return. Sheriff Bobby Blanchard, as upright as Glen is despicable, walks in the path of Glen's destruction and tries to rebuild the fragile ties of the families and community they share. Dark secrets that have been simmering for two generations explode to the surface, allowing us a chilling glimpse at how evil can fester in a man's heart and eat up his soul.

While nothing can beat his novel "Fay", this came pretty close. Larry Brown's characters and his style of writing are southern gothic with a twist of noir. And man, can he ever suck you into his stories!

Powerful, suspenseful and moving literary entertainment, the work of an enormously gifted natural writer.
This is a novel that will live with you day and night.
