Publisher's Summary

With The Clearing, Southeastern Booksellers Award winner Tim Gautreaux delivers a brutal novel of love, family, and redemption.

Randolph Aldridge travels to a snake-infested Cypress mill in Louisiana to find his brother Byron, a troubled veteran of World War I. Once there, Randolph finds that By is a shell of his former self—and that the murderous cartel controlling the mill’s casino won’t give them any peace.

    "Great plot and interesting read"

    This should be a classic. Novel unfolds nicely. Written with mastery of the harsh south, blood, sweat and violence. A must read!
