Description
It is the summer of 1948 when handsome, charismatic Charlie Beale, recently back from the war in Europe, shows up in the town of Brownsburg, a sleepy village nestled in a Virginia valley, toting a set of fine butcher's knives and a suitcase full of money, in this follow-up to Robert Goolrick's The Reliable Wife. Working at the butcher shop, Charlie gradually meets all the townsfolk, including Boaty Glass, Brownsburg's wealthiest citizen, and Boaty's beautiful teenage bride Sylvan—an encounter that sets in motion a story of obsession and love gone terribly wrong.

"A mesmerizing gothic tale of a good man gone wrong.... Goolrick effortlessly creates a timeless, erotically charged tale of illicit passion and peoples it with a unique cast of characters, ranging from a gifted black seamstress to a country girl besotted with Hollywood movie stars and fashion. Finely crafted fiction from a captivating writer."—Booklist (starred review)
