Little WolvesBook - 2012
Set on the Minnesota prairies in 1987 during a catastrophic drought season that only contributes to the demise of the family farms, Little Wolves features two intertwining narrators - a father searching for answers after his son commits a heinous murder and a pastor's wife who has returned to the town for mysterious reasons of her own. It is a penetrating look at small-town America, reminiscent of Russell Banks' Sweet Hereafter (Harper Perennial, 1991). Driven by a powerful murder mystery, Thomas Maltman's second novel is a page-turning triumph.
