In the late winter of 2006, I returned to my home town and bought 612 acres of land on the far western edge of the county. So begins, innocently enough, J. Robert Lennon's gripping and brilliant new novel. Awkward, guarded, and more than a little adamant about his need for privacy, Eric Loesch sets about renovating a rundown old house in the small, upstate New York town where he spent his childhood. When he inspects the title to the property, however, he discovers that there is a plot of dense forest smack in the middle of his land that he does not own. What's more, the name of the person it belongs to is blacked out....

The answer to what and who'might lie at the heart of Loesch's property stands at the center of this daring and riveting novel from an author whose writing, according to Ann Patchett, has enough electricity to light up the country.

    " A really well written gothic novel that falls short in the plot department. "

    " 2.5 stars would be better... really, I wanted to like it more, but had trouble getting past the fact that the main character is a bit of a jerk. "

    " I enjoyed the suspense of this novel. It reminded me a little bit of Poe with the unreliable narrator and a little bit of the short story "The Most Dangerous Game." I thought the narrator's reactions to details that should have bothered him at the beginning were not as strong as they should have been as revealed at the end, and that bothered me. This was a book that my son randomly pulled from the library shelf and told me I should read it because there was a deer on the cover. I'm glad he did and I will definitely read more of this author. "

    " While this book isn't as good as Lennon's The Funnies (which is one of my all time favorites), but it's good. The first half is particularly strong. Lennon creates a really interesting character with unique "voice." I missed the sweetness and the humor of The Funnies, but this is a totally different kind of book. "
