 "Thornton has skillfully created a hyper-detailed setting of the Nebraska plains, a landscape of empty farmhouses lined with the windbreak, described right down to the native plants . . . A gripping mixture of cop procedural and a psychological story of rebirth that gives one man the chance at leaving his past behind."—Sheila McClear, Star Tribune (Minneapolis)
