Crime's an ugly constant in the big city. L.A. Chicago. New York. But when a savage murder brutalizes a small town and neighbor turns on neighbor, a tough-as-nails cop is essential to restoring order.
Blood Land is a gritty, emotional saga set in the Wyoming badlands with both greed and vengeance at its core. When billions of dollars in natural gas rights hang in the balance and the town's top law officer's wife is slain by her own blood, a reluctant hero is forced to battle his own demons and ultimately choose between justice, revenge, and duty.
In the tradition of Dennis Lehane, Tony Hillerman, and James Lee Burke, Guthrie's sparse, haunting storytelling compliments his talent for creating richly-drawn, unflinching law officers with human frailties and a sense of justice.

Struggled to get going. The author's descriptiveness a bit much for the rough narrator. But...I'm glad I gave it a chance. Good plot (once it got going), excellent narrator. Looking forward to Guthrie's next book.
The ending came out of nowhere. Not a mention of the group in mention until they appear. They may as well be a bunch of aliens beamed down! And the narrator's hero was obviously the character from "Sling Blade!"
