It's 1911 and the townsfolk of Old Texas, Alabama, have had enough. Every Saturday night for a year, E. O. Smonk has been destroying property, killing livestock, seducing women, cheating and beating men, all from behind the twin barrels of his Winchester 45-70 caliber over-and-under rifle. Syphilitic, consumptive, gouty, and goitered--an expert with explosives and knives--Smonk hates horses, goats, and the Irish, and it's high time he was stopped. But capturing old Smonk won't be easy--and putting him on trial could have shocking and disastrous consequences, considering the terrible secret the citizens of Old Texas are hiding.

These are not quirky characters that you learn to love. These are characters harshly drawn and without redeeming value.

If you haven't read anything of Franklins, do yourself a favor and pick one up. I love the style, it reminds me of a very morbid Cormac Mccarthy. These books have a nasty sense of humor and a real soul to them. Toms stuff is good!
