In the nearly twenty years that Leonard Koznowski has been sheriff of Beaver Rapids, Wisconsin, he's never encountered a homicide. When the local mortician and his assistant are brutally gunned down, Leonard is thrust into a tumultuous investigation linkingreligion, high school athletics, the black market of body parts, unwholesome sexual proclivities, and a sinister secret society. And with deer season fast approaching, the timing could ve been a hell of a lot better.

Inspired by actual events, acclaimed cult author Jim Knipfel gives a hilariously dark, satirical twist to the American pastoral.
