One Foot in Eden

Ron Rash

  • awardlonglisted, IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, 2010
  • The year is 1951 and Holland Winchester, the local thug and a war veteran, has gone missing from his small, backwater South Carolina town. The local sheriff, Will Alexander, has a gut feeling Holland’s been murdered but the sheriff can find neither the body nor the killer. He has his suspects but no evidence. And his suspects have their stories, their motives and their truths. But secrets can only stay buried so long.

    Told from the perspective of the sheriff, a local farmer, his wife, their son and the sheriff’s deputy, One Foot in Eden explores the crime, shifting suspicion, blame and guilt with each new voice. This brilliant southern gothic novel observes the consequences of love and murder across generations.
