From a critically acclaimed NC author comes a remarkable novel about the cover-up of an accidental death. The resulting revenge affects the families and friendships of the four people involved. David Joy shares this story in The Line That Held Us. Joy's first novel, Where All Light Tends to Go, was an Edgar finalist for Best First Novel.
“Joy has proved adept with southern noir in his first two novels, and he nails it again here, in the actions of characters who act as they must, for the sake of family and friendship, given their nature. This is fiction as beautiful and compelling as it is searing.”—Booklist (starred review)
