Summary
Hold the Dark by William Giraldi is a terrifying literary thriller set on the Alaskan tundra, about the mystery of evil and mankind's losing battle with nature. Wolves have come for the children of Keelut. Three children have been taken from this isolated Alaskan village, including the six-year-old boy of Medora and Vernon Slone. Wolf expert Russell Core arrives in Keelut to investigate the killings and learns of the horrifying darkness at the heart of Medora. When her husband returns from a desert war to discover his boy dead and his wife missing, he begins a maniacal pursuit that cuts a bloody swathe across the frozen landscape. As Core attempts to rescue Medora from her husband's vengeance, he comes face to face with an unspeakable secret about the indestructible bonds of family, and the untamed animal in the soul of every human being. An epic woven of both blood and myth, Hold the Dark recalls the extreme climate and tribalism of Daniel Woodrell's Winter's Bone and the primeval violence of James Dickey's Deliverance
Summary
When wolves begin attacking children in Keelut, Alaska, at the start of a particularly brutal winter, Russell Core arrives to investigate and must keep an abusive husband from finding his missing wife after beginning a grief-fueled rampage
