The second novel by Whitney Terrell, author of The Good Lieutenant--an engrossing portrait of a Kansas City family's suspect pursuit of fortune.

In The Huntsman, a first novel hailed by Esquire as "ambitious, rousing and entirely spectacular," Whitney Terrell introduced us to the streets and neighborhoods of Kansas City. Now he offers us the story of their creation. A stunning, intensely private portrait of one man's life and his city, The King of Kings County presents a dazzling fifty-year arc through the heart of the American dream."

Review quote

"A robust, dramatic tale . . . Terrell employs the rich vocabulary of Melville and writes long muscular sentences reminiscent of Faulkner--but his style is powerfully his own."
