About this title

Synopsis:

Nazareth, Texas

Deputy Sheriff Jim Doe plunges into a renegade manhunt after the town’s sheriff is gunned down. But unbeknownst to him, the suspect—an American Indian—holds chilling connections to the disappearance of Doe’s sister years before. And the closer Doe gets to the fugitive’s trail, the more he realizes that his own involvement in the case is hardly coincidental. A descendant of the Blackfeet Nation himself, Doe keeps getting mistaken for the killer he’s chasing. And when the FBI’s finest three profilers descend on the case, Doe suspects the hunt has only just begun.

But beneath the novel’s pyrotechnic plotting, the deeper psychic cadences of Stephen Graham Jones’s prose take hold. His specific imagery and telling detail coalesce into the literary equivalent of an Edward Hopper painting. But like the other seminal works in the genre (Fight Club, Red Dragon), All The Beautiful Sinners will unnerve you, and it will then send you back to page one to experience its mysteries all over again.

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for Stephen Graham Jones’s The Fast Red Road: A Plainsong

"Jones’s first novel roars into the literary landscape like a 1970s muscle car hell-bent on nothing less than genius. . . . A hallucinatory, beguiling ride through a world both painfully real and utterly hypnotic." —The Houston Chronicle

"Jones has exploded the conventional rhythms of novelistic narrative. . . . A richly inventive writer." —The Austin Chronicle
