Overview

The critically acclaimed author of the New York Times bestseller A Land More Kind Than Home--hailed as a powerfully moving debut that reads as if Cormac McCarthy decided to rewrite Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird (Richmond Times Dispatch)--returns with a resonant novel of love and atonement, blood and vengeance, set in western North Carolina, involving two young sisters, a wayward father, and an enemy determined to see him pay for his sins. After their mother's unexpected death, twelve-year-old Easter and her six-year-old sister Ruby are adjusting to life in foster care when their errant father, Wade, suddenly appears. Since Wade signed away his legal rights, the only way he can get his daughters back is to steal them away in the night. Brady Weller, the girls' court-appointed guardian, begins looking for Wade, and he quickly turns up unsettling information linking Wade to a recent armored car heist, one with a whopping $14.5 million missing. But Brady Weller isn't the only one hunting the desperate father. Robert Pruitt, a shady and mercurial man nursing a years-old vendetta, is also determined to find Wade and claim his due. Narrated by a trio of alternating voices, This Dark Road to Mercy is a story about the indelible power of family and the primal desire to outrun a past that refuses to let go.

Reviews

The voice is Southern and oh so charming in This Dark Road to Mercy , a crime novel that's also a road movie and a baseball tale and a wicked twist on Sixth-Grade Father-Daughter Night. -- New York Times Book Review


This Dark Road to Mercy is a terrific, moving and propulsive novel: Harper Lee by way of Elmore Leonard. --Jess Walter, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Ruins


Cash follows his evocative debut with another striking take on Southern literature. . . . In the rhythms and cadence of the South, Cash offers a tale about family and about the tenuous link among the right choices, living with consequences or seeking redemption. --Kirkus Reviews
