Description
"Abandoned by his wife and young son, John Moon sits in his trailer on the mountainside.... All he has left is an acre-and-a-half of the family farm, and he makes do with odd jobs and poaching game off state land. One morning he goes hunting a deer out of season and winds up killing a young runaway instead. In trying to hide the evidence of his accidental crime, Moon finds a huge sum of money, plus evidence that the young girl was not alone.... The action in the novel takes place in the span of just seven days, and Moon's inevitable mental deterioration in the face of his horrible crime lends force to the narrative. [Matthew] Jones (The Elements of Hitting) has fashioned a compelling and readable story of one man's struggle with enormous guilt and his inability to make things go right in a world determined to make him fail. The mood is bleak, and the ending poetically just. This is not a comfortable novel to read, but it is a powerful one that deserves a wide readership."Library Journal

"A harrowing literary thriller ... a powerful blend of love and violence, of the grotesque and the tender."NYTimes

"A terrific novel ... you can hardly breathe while you're reading this book.... His crisis evokes every palm-sweating, heart-stopping, seemingly undoable mistake you've ever made."LATimes
