Publisher's Summary

Robert Jackson Bennett makes a stunning debut with this deliciously dark tale sure to hold readers in its menacing thrall. The grinding poverty brought on by the Great Depression is nowhere more apparent than in the untold thousands looking for work along America’s railroad system. But one man haunting the rail camps has been moved by an entirely different brand of desperation: revenge. And Marcus Connelly won’t stop until hee avenges his daughter’s brutal murder at the hands of a monster known as Mr. Shivers.


What the Critics Say

"Sprinkled with hobo folklore, Bennett's supernatural dust storm of a debut offers a killer premise and may remind readers of vintage Stephen King." (

- Lee

From the Cormac McCarthy Playbook

The plot of this book is clever and fascinating, but much of the novel seems to be a transposition of Blood Meridian into the depression era. There are good (even great) moments throughout, but the style gets somewhat tiresome by the end. That coupled with a conclusion that is telegraphed from the beginning of the novel made my interest flag as I went along. Still, it's an interesting story set against a vivid backdrop.
