“Set in northern Vermont in 1952, Mosher’s tale of racism and murder is powerful, viscerally affecting and totally contemporary in its exposure of deep-seated prejudice and intolerance . . . [A] big, old-fashioned novel.” —Publishers Weekly

“Reminiscent of both To Kill a Mockingbird and Anatomy of a Murder…absorbing!” – Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times

“A real mystery in the best and truest sense.”—Lee Smith, The New York Times Book Review

“Exciting and memorable…Howard Frank Mosher has made a small-town story into a universal one…and has carried it along with a rolling wave of suspense.” – Wallace Stegner
