The Mercy Seat: 1 - Askew, Rilla

The ochre Oklahoma dust blows through an 1880s Cain and Abel story as piercing and remorseless as the frontier itself. Askew shares Faulkner's understanding of the inescapable pull of family and violence, and Cormac McCarthy's feel for the stark beauty of the West.
