Description

The frozen wastes of North America are Michael Collins's heart of darkness, a territory he maps with infinite precision in this novel of murder and menace. Twenty years ago, when Frank was five, his parents burned to death in a remote Northern town. Now, his uncle is dead too, shot by a mysterious stranger with a dead man's name, a stranger who now lies in a coma in the local hospital. Frank heads north to dig up the past ' back to the town where he never belonged, to find out why his uncle died, and why people shrink when they hear his name.show more

"Booker-shortlisted Michael Collins's latest novel is a brilliant evocation of depressed rural America as a modern-day heart of darkness."WATERSTONES BOOKS QUARTERLY "The plot is masterly and the writing dazzles; only the hopeless plight of the wretched protagonists fails to lift the spirits in this terrific story."GOODshow more
