In 1972, the town of DeClare, Oklahoma, was consumed by the terrifying murder of Gaylene Harjo and the disappearance of her baby, Nicky Jack. When the child’s pajama bottoms were found on the banks of Willow Creek, everyone feared Nicky Jack was dead though his body was never found. Nearly thirty years later, Nicky Jack mysteriously returns to DeClare. His sudden reappearance stuns the people of DeClare and stirs up long-buried emotions and memories. But what Nicky Jack discovers among the people who remember the night he vanished is far more than he, or anyone, bargains for. Piece by piece, what emerges is a story of dashed hopes, desperate love, and a shocking act with repercussions that will cry out for justice and redemption.

Full of the authentic heartland characters that Billie Letts writes about so beautifully, Shoot the Moon is a hypnotic tale filled with suspense and emotional truth. It further establishes Letts as an American writer to be reckoned with, an original storyteller whose words go straight to our heart.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Kathe Mazur’s easy-on-the-ears voice makes the story an enjoyable companion on a long road trip. She uses nuances in her voice to move between past and present, giving us a sense of the story's characters, culture, and community.”


  • “Letts peppers her prose with a cast of quirky characters, including a quartet of nosy, domino-playing senior citizens and a perky pool-hall owner who bakes peanut-butter pies. Readers of Sue Miller and Wally Lamb are sure to embrace this memorable tale of love, loss, humanity, and hope.”


  • “Perfect for the beach.”

    " Don't read this book looking for something deep and thought provoking. Read it for what it is, an interesting, quick, fluff kind of read. If you read it for that, you will really enjoy it. :) "

    " This was a fine read (for book club), but I don't know that I really got anything out of it either. It was an interesting story, and I liked the main characters. It seemed to be written for drama's sake, which I'm sure plenty of people like. I prefer books that inspire me. "

    " A good beach read, but not too much more. Interesting plot line, but the prose lacked creativity. "
