"There's no other way to say it: Benjamin Percy has written a stunner, a genre-bending novel of suspense and terror but with Percy's usual force-of-nature language and his deep insights into character. I cannot recommend this novel highly enough, nor could I put it down."-Tom Franklin, author of Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, Hell at the Breech and Poachers
