Love and tragedy are not strange bedfellows among the Tufa. Young Kera Rogers disappears while hiking in the woods by Needsville. When her half-eaten remains are discovered, the blame falls upon a herd of wild hogs, a serious threat in this rural community. In response, the county’s best trackers, including game warden Jack Cates and ex-military Tufa Bronwyn Chess, are assembled to hunt them down. Kara’s boyfriend Duncan Gowen mourns her death, until he finds evidence she cheated on him with his best friend, Adam Procure. Seeking revenge, Duncan entices Adam to participate in their own boar hunt. Later, Bronwyn and Jack stumble across a devastated Duncan, who claims a giant boar impaled Adam and dragged him off. As this second death rocks the town, people begin to wonder who is really responsible. Determined hunters pursue the ravenous horde through the Appalachians as other Tufa seek their own answers. Between literal beasts in the woods and figurative wolves in sheep’s clothing, what truths will arise come spring?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A lush, descriptive, and darkly creative blend of real-world mystery, deeply insightful character study, and a rich exploration of folklore.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“Beautifully atmospheric…Bledsoe comfortably inhabits the space where rural fantasy and magic realism overlap and makes it his own.” Publishers Weekly
“A must-read for fantasy or literary-fiction fans and also a perfect fit for a mystery lover seeking something a little different.” Booklist
“The latest entry in this marvelous series combines human drama with just a touch of otherworldly magic. The split nature of the Tufa community is further explored, but Bledsoe never reduces the two sides to basic good vs. evil, as he allows his characters to make their own choices.” Library Journal
