Summary
Llewelyn Moss is hunting antelope in southwest Texas when he stumbles across the bloody remnants of a Mexican drug deal gone bad and $2.5 million. Llewelyn takes off with the cash, with many lawmen hot on his trail, including the wise local Sheriff Bell. Even worse is that the trail includes a dangerous psychopathic murderer named Chigurh, a man who doesn't usually think before he shoots.
Critique
Action-packed, suspense-filled and very bloody. This novel has thrills galore and will keep you on the edge of your seat. Characters are well-developed and very human, particularly Sheriff Bell who contemplates the changing way of the world amidst all this violence. Excellent writing. Highly recommend.
