Kathleen Kent – The Outcasts.

The Outcasts – Kathleen Kent (2013, Little, Brown and Company, New York)
A cache of gold, an epileptic prostitute, a psychotic serial killer, and a young lawman on a journey into the heart of darkness – throw them all together in the nineteenth century Gulf Coast and spin the wheel. Everyone and everything exists in moral shades of grey, and unspools through the multitude of bumps and shocks along the way to the surprising conclusion. This deceptively quiet novel burns slowly, and sits in an ashpile in your brain long after you’ve turned the last page.
