"With his impeccable pacing, and richly humane story-telling, Sallis brings his heroine to life in a way that is tender and yet as threatening as only the best noir can be."

No one evokes ennui of a life on the edge of the law quite like the American James Sallis. He is, as Ian Rankin puts it, ‘one of the best of the best’, as he demonstrates in this sublime, spare story of a stand-in female sheriff named Sarah Jane Pullman, in a tiny rural town called Farr... With his impeccable pacing, and richly humane story-telling, Sallis brings his heroine to life in a way that is tender and yet as threatening as only the best noir can be.
