Description

Llewelyn Moss, hunting antelope near the Rio Grande, instead finds men shot dead, a load of heroin, and more than $2 million in cash. Packing the money out, he knows, will change everything. But only after two more men are murdered does a victim's burning car lead Sheriff Bell to the carnage out in the desert, and he soon realizes how desperately Moss and his young wife need protection. One party in the failed transaction hires an ex-Special Forces officer to defend his interests against a mesmerizing freelancer, while on either side are men accustomed to spectacular violence and mayhem. The pursuit stretches up and down and across the border, each participant seemingly determined to answer what one asks another: how does a man decide in what order to abandon his life? A harrowing story of a war that society is waging on itself, and an enduring meditation on the ties of love and blood and duty that inform lives and shape destinies, No Country for Old Men is a novel of extraordinary resonance and power.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Tom Stechschulte smoothly captures the reflections of West Texas Sheriff Tom Bell as they wind through this noir tale of bloodshed in the wild present-day West. Superb pacing and a gruff manner capture the men weathered by the lives they've led, keeping them as individualized as necessary. Capturing "good guys" and innocents caught in the cross fire of a drug deal gone bad, Stechschulte also skillfully maintains the hair-trigger tension of chilling psychopath Anton Chigurh. The sheriff's deputies, amusingly voiced as buffoons, add a bit of levity. McCarthy's superb writing powerfully measures the moral opposites of sheriff and killer, and Stechschulte uses fluid storytelling to balance the violent tale. R.F.W.
