"A feverish foreman, an inexperienced sheriff, a widowed whore, and a kindly outlaw are just some of the engrossing characters in Oppegaard's page-turner. The narrative is subtle and lovely, contrasting with a creepy, believable monster. The two combine in a story that's horrific, thrilling, touching, and unflinchingly satisfying to the last page." -Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review)
