The world of this novel is ceaselessly violent - not an easy place to visit. But even a reader worn ragged by so much tight-wound brutality will devour Vann's masterful plotting.

The novel is not about faith or forgiveness or hope or redemption. It’s about surviving our past and the fear of the gods we know.

The book is disturbing, and I cannot say it was a pleasure to read, though there were moments of beautiful writing. However, for those who enjoy Cormac McCarthy or, going back further, Frank Norris or Stephen Crane, I’d recommend it.
