9781616951900: Little Wolves

A tragic act of violence echoes through a small Minnesota town

Set on the Minnesota prairie in the late 1980s during a drought season that’s pushing family farms to the brink, Little Wolves features the intertwining stories of a father searching for answers after his son commits a heinous murder, and a pastor’s wife (and washed-out scholar of early Anglo-Saxon literature) who has returned to the town for mysterious reasons of her own. A penetrating look at small-town America from the award-winning author of The Night Birds, Little Wolves weaves together elements of folklore and Norse mythology while being driven by a powerful murder mystery; a page-turning literary triumph.

Review:

Amazon Best Books of the Month, January 2013: What a moody, brooding, and myth-soaked thriller. It’s as if Maltman dropped '50s-era Raymond Chandler characters onto the drought-wracked prairies of 1980s Minnesota, and the translation works really well. In the opening pages, Grizz Fallon learns that his son has killed the sheriff and himself, while the new pastor’s wife stews over her uneasy return to her former hometown and her strange, brief friendship with Fallon’s troubled son. Haunting and gothic, with spooky hints of mythology and the supernatural, this is more than a gritty small-town murder story. Like the best of Cormac McCarthy, Little Wolves is a deeply moving exploration of the nature of violence and the secret selves we all strive to keep hidden. --Neal Thompson
