A writer paints a world not out of words, but out of imagination. The sky is not blue because it is blue; the sky is blue because the author says it is. And we know those words to be true. Not because they've told the truth or because they've told a lie — that matters not at all — but because a story is always true if we believe inside our minds and feel inside our hearts.

It's a murder mystery set in a rural Wyoming town. The people don't have much but jobs and drugs. In fact, no one is happy at all. The air is so cold it can freeze your lungs if the perpetual snowfall doesn't bury you first. Sheep fall prey to wolves and the wolves fall prey to the hunters, who kill not for sport but for survival. What little they have is earned, and none of it is what they want. It's just what they need. That, and death.Read More...
