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.
