Book Details

Format: EPUB

Protection: DRM

Language: English

Llewlyn Moss, hunting antelope near the Rio Grande, stumbles upon a transaction gone horribly wrong. Finding bullet-ridden bodies, several kilos of heroin, and a caseload of cash, he faces a choice – leave the scene as he found it, or cut the money and run. Choosing the latter, he knows, will change everything. And so begins a terrifying chain of events, in which each participant seems determined to answer the question that one asks another: how does a man decide in what order to abandon his life? ‘No Country for Old Men is a compelling, harrowing, disturbing, sad, endlessly surprising and resonant novel’ Robert Edric, Spectator ‘No Country for Old Men is a severed head and shoulders over anything else written in America this year’ Independent on Sunday ‘A Western thriller with a racy plot and punchy dialogue, perfect for a lazy Sunday’ Sarah Emily Miano, The Times ‘[An] utterly absorbing, chilling tale . . . One of the most sinister characters in modern American fiction’ Herald ‘A fast, powerful read, steeped with a deep sorrow about the moral degradation of the legendary American West’ Lionel Shriver, Financial Times
