Rash, Ron(2002)
One Foot in Eden

Holland Winchester vanished and the sheriff thinks he knows why. But he can`t assemble all the puzzle pieces. The mystery unfolds in the words of several narrators, each one revealing only what he or she has experienced personally, their stories expanding the account until the reader understands exactly what occurred, and more importantly why. Set in the mountains on the line between western North and South Carolina, the isolated setting is central to the story, the environment there shaped each storyteller`s decisions. Ron Rash has created a true tragedy, where the behavior of each character is logical and their resultant suffering is inevitable. I can`t wait for his next book.
