A sharp, to-the-point review by BARB ETTRIDGE.
Clayton Lindemuth brings post-war Pennsylvania into stark focus with the voice of each character who brings brutal honesty to what is a dark tale of how fate, greed and anger can destroy your life and those who cross your path.The storyline twists like a furious serpent as each shocking event unfolds – shocking, but all so plausible, as each has been set up beautifully.
Re-reading what you can’t believe just happened simply confirms the masterful seeding of small details that fester and then erupt.
This is a book written in a deceptively spare style where everything matters and just when you think the rabbit hole can’t get any deeper, it does.
