I know it’s blasphemy for me to say I didn’t like it but I’m happy to say I’ve read and experienced it and that I can check it off the list.

Synopsis

When the last honest citizen of Poisonville was murdered, the Continental Op stayed on to punish the guilty--even if that meant taking on an entire town. Red Harvest is more than a superb crime novel: it is a classic exploration of corruption and violence in the American grain.


From the Trade Paperback edition.
