Hard to believe you can root for someone who steals from old people and sells pills to drug addicts, put Carter Sickels pulls it off. It's a quick read with good pacing and just the right amount of detail. The story never gets bogged down or slow. I can't wait for his next book.

While I did enjoy reading this book, I absolutly hate that it is anti-coal. I live in WV, in an area that is remarkably like Dove Creek. Coal is a way of life here, just as drugs are a way of life for some. A strip mine recently closed down, and with it most likely will be our whole community. Coal is very likely powering your electricity right now!

A powerful and imaginative story with an important message about how lives are impacted by greed (of the mining companies). Very readable. .

If you've ever been in the mountains, really deep in the mountains and if you have seen what they (mining companies) have done you know it isn't good. Listen as Carter introduces you to those living and dying through it!

This story is not typical. It is well-told and extremely interesting with characters who resemble real people with all of their good and bad qualities. One questions what is "right" and "wrong" and "moral" and "immoral." Excellent!
