Set on the Minnesota prairie in the late 1980s during a drought season that's pushing family farms to the brink, "Little Wolves" features the intertwining stories of a father searching for answers after his son commits a heinous murder, and a pastor's wife (and washed-out scholar of early Anglo-Saxon literature) who has returned to the town for mysterious reasons of her own. A penetrating look at small-town America from the award-winning author of "The Night Birds," "Little Wolves" weaves together elements of folklore and Norse mythology while being driven by a powerful murder mystery; a page-turning literary triumph.
