All the Beautiful Sinners
Stephen Graham Jones
Deputy Sheriff Jim Doe plunges into a renegade manhunt after the town’s sheriff is gunned down. But unbeknownst to him, the suspectâ€”an American Indianâ€”holds chilling connections to the disappearance of Doe’s sister years before. And the closer Doe gets to the fugitive’s trail, the more he realizes that his own involvement in the case is hardly coincidental. A descendant of the Blackfeet Nation himself, Doe keeps getting mistaken for the killer he’s chasing. And when the FBI’s finest three profilers descend on the case, Doe suspects the hunt has only just begun.
Praise for All the Beautiful Sinners
"Imagine the laconic Sherman Alexie meeting the bombastic Stephen King on the Texas High Plains." â€”Austin Chronicle
"Jones’s writing betrays a huge intelligence, but he embraces the genre’s conventions without sending them up or dumbing them down. â€”Texas Monthly
"The book masterfully plays with the serial killer genre, walking a line between convention and invention and delving into the psychology of both killer and detective. The plot is chilling in itself, but Jones’s brisk, clean, visceral prose gives the novel its edgy suspense." â€”Publishers Weekly
"…it does what crime drama is supposed to do: scare the bejesus out of the reader. Eerie and engrossing, the novel is the sort of thing you have to shake out of your system when you’ve finished, but like a train ride through hell, you can’t get off until it gets to a station." â€”San Antonio Express
