Product description

Review

"I think this could be the beginning of a long, fruitful career" (Ernest J. Gaines, author of "A Lesson Before Dying" and "The Autobiography of Jane Pittman")

"One of the most powerful novels I have ever read" (Fred Chappell, author of "I Am One of You Forever" and "Brighten the Corner Where You Are")

"Electrifying debut" (Financial Times)

"Cash's debut novel (A Land More Kind Than Home) is a chilling descent into the world of religious frenzy in small town North Carolina. The languid atmosphere seduces, and Cash's fine first effort pulls the reader into a shadowy, tormented world where wolves prowl in the guise of sheep" (Publishers' Weekly)

"Mesmerizing first novel... intensely felt and beautifully told" (The New York Times)

Book Description

The winner of the CWA John Creasey Award for Best First Novel 2012 - a stunning piece of southern crime noir
