"It's hard to turn the other cheek with a rifle barrel in your mouth..."   In 1957 rural Pennsylvania, Angus Hardgrave works an oil rig, fights dogs, distills Walnut Whiskey... and murders wives, friends, anybody. The presence in the walnut tree on a spur called Devil's Elbow instructs Angus what to do, and following the visions has led Angus to a simple country bounty...   But Angus wants more. Alone when her father dies, eighteen-year-old Emeline Margulies believes she hears the voice of God tell her to escape the clutches of a violent Korean War vet by marrying Angus Hardgrave--a man rumored to have pitiable luck with wives. She finds herself trapped between a stalking rapist and a serial killer. As each decision leads her closer to destruction, Emeline must choose between following the faith that got her into trouble... Or the moxie, resolve, and evil within that promise to get her out.

★★★★★     This may very well be the perfect novel for me. It has everything I love about fiction. Within the first couple pages I was instantly transported into a world I will never inhabit, and among people I may never meet. The narrative is rhythmic. Lindemuth never slips you any ten-penny words, but your mind is still blown. The pacing, the suspense, the language... This will do you solid.★★★★★     I could not put the book down until I finished it. I enjoy nothing more than a good page turner. the story was dark yet compelling and it had a satisfying conclusion. I kept picturing it as an award winning movie and wondering who would play the parts of these characters.★★★★★     This is not the genra I typically read. It was recommended to me and once I started I didn't put it down until I couldn't keep my eyes open, then I couldn't wait to finish it the next day. Such a good book that I downloaded another Clayton Lindemuth book to read next. This is a well written and must read suspense.
