‘An unputdownable knock-out.’ Lauren Wilkinson, author of American Spy
‘A searing, thunderous, heartbreaking thriller. Wiley Cash has talent to burn.’
An unputdownable knock-out: written in deft, thrilling prose, this book is both a gripping murder mystery and a thoughtful exploration of systemic racism in America. The perfect novel for our present moment.
A fascinating, nuanced meditation on life - both the living of it and the taking of it - in the crucible of small town America. Wiley Cash is our guide through this maze of old secrets and fresh hurts. Take his hand, follow his lead and face the truth.
A treatise on race in America wrapped in a family drama wrapped in a mystery . . . Cash puts his whole heart on the page with these flawed, true characters, and the reward is ours.
When Ghosts Come Home is a gripping mystery. Set in 1984, Cash’s exploration of race, justice, and grief – of the fault lines that rip apart families and communities – could not be more timely.
Taut, tense, and tender - this novel hits every note. I loved it and devoured it with fury, straight to its blazing end.
