Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ford's mesmerizing first novel is the story of two godless pilgrims. Robard Hewes has driven across the country in the service of a destructive passion. Sam Newell is seeking the missing piece of himself. Whenthese men converge, on an uncharted island in the Mississippi, each discovers the thing he's looking for--amid a conflagration of violence that's as shocking as it is inevitable.

This is one ofthose books that hit you hard...a story filled with breathing characters and genius-crafted dialogue between moments of consummate description.... I can't be unbiased. I'm mad for this book.--Elizabeth Ashton, Houston Chronicle

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

The pursuits of an ignorant Southerner and a law student, who meet en route to an Arkansas river island hideaway, begin to interweave, with explosive consequences
