Overview

“Kevin McCarthy is in the company of masters like Patrick O’Brian and Hilary Mantel.… [A] shiningly humane novel.” —Stephen Harrigan, author of The Gates of the Alamo and A Friend of Mr. Lincoln

1866, Dakota Territory. Red Cloud’s coalition of tribes is battling the U.S. Army to reclaim hunting grounds in the Powder River Valley. Against this background, Wolves of Eden sets four men on a deadly collision course in a narrative that explores the cruelty of warfare, the power of love and the resilience of the human spirit. Lieutenant Martin Molloy and his loyal orderly are sent west to investigate a triple murder at a frontier fort, and Irish immigrant brothers Thomas and Michael O’Driscoll, who survived the brutal frontlines of the Civil War, find themselves as both hunters and the hunted in another bloody campaign. Blending intimate historical detail and emotional acuity, Wolves of Eden is “a riveting and propulsive mystery” (Publishers Weekly).
