Summary
"Four Corners is a bare-knuckled debut novel in the style of Daniel Woodrell, Barry Hannah, and Charles Bowden. Both a savage, mean-streets thriller and a heartbreaking story of unfortunate love, Four Corners is carved from the rich, distinct voices and landscapes of the American Southwest. It manages to be brutal and beautiful at the same time. For the better part of thirty-seven years, Frank Bruce has hobbled through his life, dragging his hunger for amphetamines, alcohol, and crime behind him like a heap of tarnished weight. Now, emboldened by the love of his child-fiancé Maddie Nicole, Frank turns his back on all his addictions and runs away from New Mexico hoping for a second chance. Frank goes on the lam through the drug underworld of the Southwest trying to save Sean from his meth-riddled father and Machiavellian grandfather, the casino mogul Marcus Shenk, whose brutal tyranny crosses over all four corners of the southwest. Trapped by his crooked past, but determined to protect everything he loves, Frank looks for help from his onetime mentor, drug kingpin and murderer Jon Santer. But in doing so, Frank unknowingly drags himself and all that he is trying to keep safe into a final, vile reckoning with Shenk, his henchmen, and his terrible, corrupt legacy"--Provided by publisher
