A searing novel about two friends on opposite sides of the law, from the author of Rust and Bone, “a writer of immense power” (Peter Straub)

On the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, life beyond the tourist trade isn’t easy. Locals like Duncan Diggs and Owen Stuckey have few chances to leave. For Duncan, that means shift work on a production line. For Owen, it means pinning it all on a shot at college basketball. But they should know better; they’ve been unlucky before. As boys, they were abducted and abandoned in the woods. Though they made it out alive, the memory of that time won’t fade. Over the years they drift apart, but when Duncan is drawn into a chaotic world of bare-knuckle fighting and other shady dealings, Owen, now a cop, can’t look the other way any longer. Together, they’ll be forced to survive the wilderness once more as their friendship is pushed to the limit in Cataract City, a white-hot novel by the rising star Craig Davidson.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Childhood friends pursue lives on opposite sides of the law in this sweeping literary crime novel from Davidson…The characters, audacious sweep of the story, and propulsive noir writing make this novel a standout. To live in Cataract City, Duncan observes, is ‘to accept many disappointments’; Davidson’s novel, on the other hand, lives up to its promise.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “A swiftly told, matter-of-fact unfolding of lives threatening to derail.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Snowmobile chases, cigarettes, and snub noses: Canadian novelist Davidson’s latest is a down-and-dirty look at life on the quiet side of Niagara Falls…‘It’s a big world out there,’ our narrator tells us. So it is, and while you wouldn’t want to live in this corner of it, it’s well worth a visit.”
