Harry Griffin is a loner who's witnessed some of war's rawest moments. A survivor, he is guided in all things by his unfailing loyalty and honesty. But a tragic altercation in Minnesota's North Woods that leaves a young man dead and suspicions of murder hanging in the air tests Harry's courage as never before. Nothing could have prepared him for the eerie silence that has fallen over the incident, the challenge to his nerve, and the raw carnality of his best friend's wife.
Digging for answers in a town ready to lash out in fear of the dark secrets he is moving ever closer to, Harry ignores the signs of danger at his own peril. Until it all ignites in a fire of unexpected betrayal and a bloody settling of accounts.

A winter hunting trip that explodes in tragic death...a snake-pit of small-town secrets...and a chilling mystery that reaches from the past, setting men and women against one another in a whiteout of violence, blackmail and vigilante justice.
These are the elements that announce Chuck Logan's remarkable debut thriller as one of the year's most exciting discoveries.
Harry Griffin is a quiet loner whose current profession as an illustrator for a big-city newspaper gives no hint of his hard-knocks background. Witness to some of war's rawest moments and survivor of a battle with alcoholism, Harry's only constant is loyalty. He is a man who pays his debts.
Hence, when old friend Bud Maston, one of the state's richest men, insists Harry join him on a hunting trip, he goes. But nothing has prepared Harry for the raw carnality of Jesse Deucette -- the new Mrs. Maston. And once Harry is stranded with her at Bud's snowbound lodge, events rapidly spiral toward tragedy.
On the opening morning of deer season, Harry thwarts an attempt on Bud's life. Haunted by the blood he has spilled, Harry seeks answers. And the answers lie in Stanley, Minnesota -- where Jesse Deucette-Maston uses her deadly allure to manipulate and cajole, and everyone seems to have a dark secret. Ultimately, Harry turns over enough stones to bring the town's roiling cauldron of hypocrisy and deviancy to a boil. In the novel's climax, he learns both the best and the worst that humans are capable of.About the Author:
