Mulholland Books presents... A SINGLE SHOT

Anyone's life can change in an instant. In Matthew F. Jones's acclaimed novel, one man's world is overturned with a single shot.

Trespassing on what was once his family's land, John Moon hears a rustle in the brush and fires. But instead of the deer he was expecting, he finds the body of a young woman, killed by his stray bullet. A terrible dilemma is made worse when he stumbles upon her campground - and the piles of drugs and money concealed there.

Moon makes his choice: he hides the corpse, and takes the cash. His decision will have consequences he can neither predict or control.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Breathtakingly good...With a supreme sense of place and marvellously drawn characters, especially Moon, there's that sense of destiny and despair that haunts the finest noir, including, of course, James M Cain's majestic The Postman Always Rings Twice. The comparison is entirely apt. * Daily Mail *
A backwoods drama that is part Crime and Punishment, part Deliverance, and all white-knuckled suspense...it packs a helluva punch * People *
A harrowing literary thriller...a powerful blend of love and violence, of the grotesque and the tender. * New York Times Book Review *
A terrific novel...you can hardly breathe while you're reading this book....his crisis evokes every palm-sweating, heart-stopping, seemingly undoable mistake you've ever made * Los Angeles Times *
A harrowing, high-voltage thriller...A gritty, claustrophobic blend of Jim Thompson and James Dickey. * Publishers Weekly *
Jones owns a fine writer's eye for the kind of details that matter. * Washington Post *
