Overview

In this action packed horror novel set in the old west, Margaret "Peggy" Thomas' peaceful life is turned upside down after the murder of the local sheriff, her husband, James. Peggy, accompanied by a group of misfit companions, will stop at nothing to face her husband's killer, and time is running out. Del Howison has crafted a dark, nuanced tale about justice, found family, and the choices we make in the throes of desperation when faced with nothing to lose. The Survival of Margaret Thomas transcends genre into a tale of hope, heart, and revenge.

Margaret Thomas lives a quiet life with her husband James in the small town of Bleak Knob, Missouri. Until one afternoon James is gunned down on the sidewalk in front of her, and she's left to care for the land and herself, alone. With more questions than answers, and years of grief and alcohol, a sudden telegram announcing the upcoming trial of one of James' killers pushes Peggy into action. accompanied by groups of misfit companions, Peggy will stop at nothing to face her husband's killer, and time is running out.

Powerful and wrought with adventure, The Survival of Margaret Thomas is the newest in a long line of great American road novels.

"Memories are what we take with us, and what we leave behind. As Americans, we all carry, like memories we can't shake off, rich veins of the frontier myths that gave birth to our literature. Del Howison mines these wonderfully." -James Sallis, author of Drive
