From the acclaimed author of Acts of Faith ('A miracle . . . You can hardly conceive of a more affecting reading experience' - Houston Chronicle), a blistering new novel about the brutality and beauty of life on the Arizona-Mexico border and about the unyielding power of the past.

When Gil Castle loses his wife in the destruction of 9/11, he retreats to his family's sprawling ranch in Arizona. It's a part of the world where drug lords have more power than police and violence is a constant presence. But it is also a world of vast, open space where Gil begins to rebuild his belief in the potential for happiness - until he starts to uncover the dark truths about his fearsome grandfather, a legacy that has been tightly shrouded in mystery in the years since the old man's death. And when Gil comes to the aid of a Mexican man whose border-crossing drug deal has gone bad, his act of generosity sets off a flood of violence and vengeance, a fierce reminder of the fact that while he may be able to reinvent himself, he might never escape his family's past.

Searingly dramatic, bold and timely, Crossers is Philip Caputo's most ambitious and brilliantly realized novel yet.
