Wyoming Territory, 1870.
Elijah Carter is afflicted. Most of the townsfolk of South Pass City treat him as a simpleton
because he’s deaf, but that’s not what shames him the most. Something in Elijah runs contrary to
nature and to God. Something that Elijah desperately tries to keep hidden.
Harlan Crane, owner of the Empire saloon, knows Elijah for what he is—and for all the ungodly
things he wants. And Crane isn’t the only one. Grady Mullins desires Elijah too, but unlike Crane,
he refuses to push or mistreat the young man.
When violence shatters Elijah’s world, he is caught between two very different men and two
devastating urges: revenge and despair. In a boomtown teetering on the edge of a bust, Elijah must
face what it means to be a man in control of his own destiny, and choose a course that might end
his life . . . or truly begin it for the very first time.
About the Author
Lisa Henry lives in tropical North Queensland, Australia. She doesn’t know why, because she
hates the heat, but suspects she’s too lazy to move. She spends half her time slaving away as a
government minion, and the other half plotting her escape.
She attended university at sixteen, not because she was a child prodigy or anything, but because of
a mixup between international school systems early in life. She studied History and English,
neither of them very thoroughly.
She shares her house with too many cats, a dog, a green tree frog that swims in the toilet, and as
many possums as can break in every night. This is not how she imagined life as a grownup.
