Staff Reviews


The author of The Dog Stars follows that terrific novel with one that may be even better. A popular Santa Fe artist who spends as much time fishing as he does painting becomes a murder suspect. The value of his artwork soars. The family of the deceased is trying to kill him. He keeps painting and fishing through the chaos while the ghosts of his heartbreaking and violent past haunt him. A thrilling read. — Stan Hynds

Description


An Oprah.com "Must-Read" Book

After having shot a man in a Santa Fe bar, the famous artist Jim Stegner served his time and has since struggled to manage the dark impulses that sometimes overtake him. Now he lives a quiet life. . . until the day that he comes across a hunting guide beating a small horse, and a brutal act of new violence rips his quiet life right open. Pursued by men dead set on retribution, Jim is left with no choice but to return to New Mexico and the high-profile life he left behind, where he'll reckon with past deeds and the dark shadows in his own heart.
