From the night-black depths of a coalmine to the sun-struck
peaks of the Appalachian Mountains, from a riveting murder
mystery to a poignant meditation on the meaning of love and
family, the latest novel in the critically acclaimed series
strikes out for new territory: the sorrow and outrage that
spring from a real-life chapter in West Virginia history.
Royce Dillard doesn't remember much about the day his
parents-and one hundred and twenty-three other souls-died in
the 1972 Buffalo Creek disaster. He was only two years old
when he was ripped from his mother's arms. But now Dillard,
who lives off the grid with only a passel of dogs for
company, is fighting for his life one more time: He's on
trial for murder.
Prosecutor Bell Elkins faces her toughest challenge yet in
this haunting story of vengeance, greed and the fierce
struggle for social justice. Richly imagined, vividly
written and deeply felt, LAST RAGGED BREATH is set in West
Virginia, but it really takes place in a land we all know:
the country called home.
