In his quiet Vermont home, a man named Taft sits and wonders what's missing from his life. He's at a loss until a strange voice startles him from the rocking chair, where a stranger has seemingly appeared out of nowhere: well-dressed and smooth-talking, this man offers Taft the chance to have anything he's ever wanted-for a price. So begins The Devil in the Valley, the latest novel from critically acclaimed author Castle Freeman, Jr. Combining his deft hand for the supernatural with his classic setting of rural Vermont, Freeman gives us a story that touches on temptation and greed, and explores what we're willing to trade to obtain the things we most desire. A modern fable that explores the supernatural while staying rooted deeply in our world, The Devil in the Valley is a powerful novel from a master at his craft.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This unusual little gem of a book is part comic romp and part nail-biting thriller ... Castle Freeman writes with both wit and a deep understanding of the human psyche, and he does not cheat us out of a dramatic climax. * The Guardian *
A Faustian tale in (Castle Freeman's) inimitable style. Full of laconic dialogue and waggish asides on contemporary culture, this is a thoroughly enjoyable read from the ever-inventive Freeman. * The Booklist *
Castle Freeman, Jr. packs more story into 160 pages than more famous authors could fit into twice as many. * USA Today *
