“Keller makes a powerful entry into the crime fiction field with the introduction of Bell Elkins, a prosecutor in rural West Virginia, who must not only deal with a triple murder but also must constantly contend with a deteriorating society beset by the scourge of methamphetamine. Finely drawn characters, strong plot lines, and keen attention to a growing problem in rural America make this a gripping read.”
— Bill Cusumano, Nicola's Books, Ann Arbor, MI


In this powerful, intricate debut from a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, a mother and a daughter try to do right by a town and each other before it's too late when three men are gunned down over their coffee at a local diner in West Virginia.
