Summary

In his blistering new novel, Cormac McCarthy returns to the Texas-Mexico border, setting of his famedBorder Trilogy. The time is our own, when rustlers have given way to drug-runners and small towns have become free-fire zones. One day, a good old boy named Llewellyn Moss finds a pickup truck surrounded by a bodyguard of dead men. A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the lawin the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bellcan contain. As Moss tries to evade his pursuersin particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human livesMcCarthy simultaneously strips down the American crime novel and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning's headlines. No Country for Old Menis a triumph. From the Trade Paperback edition.
