The Edgar Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author is back with a masterpiece of suspense set in a time and place that readers won’t soon forget.
“Brilliant…the most effective of his thrillers since his Edgar-winning Blue Heaven.” - Booklist *STARRED* Review
Twenty miles across the North Dakota border, where the scenery goes from rolling grass prairie to pipeline fields, detective Cassie Dewell has been assigned as the new deputy sheriff of Grimstad—a place people used to be from, but were never headed to. Grimstad is now the oil capital of North Dakota. With oil comes money, with money comes drugs, and with drugs come the dirtiest criminals hustling to corner the market.
