Summary
Former lawman Arthur Sprawl is called out of retirement to hunt down a serial killer whoís viciously mutilating American Indians and leaving their bodies for display. Itís bleak Depression era in Eastern Washington, and Sprawl, on his horse, is joined by his son Elijah, who considers himself a prophet, as they travel through the countryside investigating these murders. Sprawl is no angel; heís got a reputation as an effective lawman, but his success was attained through brutal bloodshed and frontier justice.
Critique
Though thoroughly dark, gritty, and deeply violent, Holbertís prose beautifully describes the natural world through which Sprawl and his son travel.
