THE DEVIL IS ALWAYS IN DISGUISE

A stranger appears at an isolated cabin in frontier America. He has no friends, and no apparent purpose. But as the sun disappears and the desert darkens, a series of strange and savage events start to unfold.

Turning the western genre on its head, Ryan Ireland's deeply affecting tale transports readers into a visceral and terrifying world of shape-shifters, shadows and the darkest parts of Western American lore.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'An unflinching, soul-searching story about the dangers of the American West... Ireland's voice stands apart and he will surely be marked as a courageous and essential writer.'

-- Ann Weisgarber, author of the award-winning The Personal History of Rachel DuPree

'Expertly plotted, artfully executed, compulsively readable... a writer who has something to say.'

* Los Angeles Review of Books *

'Ireland blends fanciful history with magic realism to create a critical allegory of the American expansionist experience ... Intellectual in theme, literary in execution: think Gabriel Garcia Marquez reimagining Little Big Man.'

* Kirkus Reviews *

'Mythical, dangerous and deeply unsettling.'

* Shortlist *

'Ireland's intensely and brutally violent debut novel sweeps through period and place while exploring the role memory plays in the establishment of creation myths ... a barbaric vision of the West.'

* Library Journal *

'With trenchant dialogue, affecting characters, and a page-turner of a story, Ryan Ireland has given readers a mysterious and exciting Western that may become a classic.'

-- Ron Hansen, author of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
