Description

The border town called Sixes is quiet in the heat of the day. Still, Appaloosa Elim has heard the stories about what wakes at sunset: gunslingers and shapeshifters and ancient animal gods whose human faces never outlast the daylight. And the daylight is running out. Elim's so-called 'partner' - that lily-white lordling Sil Halfwick - has disappeared inside the old adobe walls, hell-bent on making a name for himself among Sixes' notorious black-market traders. Elim, whose worldly station is written in the bastard browns and whites of his cow-spotted face, doesn't dare show up home without him. If he ever wants to go home again, he'd better find his missing partner fast. But if he's caught out after dark, Elim risks succumbing to the old and sinister truth in his own flesh - and discovering just how far he'll go to survive the night.

Review quote

"This author can really write. If you loved Stephen King's Dark Tower series - or even if you're a hardened Cormac McCarthy fan - you will find this book right inside your wheelhouse. Living, witty dialogue, and a familiar-yet-strange world inhabited by vivid characters. I loved it. And I don't say that about a book very often." -- Paul Kearney author of The Ten Thousand, Hawkwood and Kings, A Different Kingdom. 'When young Sil Halfwick's attempt to sell horses ends in abject failure, he...heads west toward Sixes, near the border of lands emptied of white settlers by war and invasion. It falls to Appaloosa Elim - a mixed-race man who's older, wiser, and scorned by Sil - to try to keep the ambitious young idiot alive...Thompson's debut is clearly written and engaging' Publisher's Weekly
