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.

'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 *
