Jennifer Givhan recommends
Valley of Shadows (2022)
Rudy Ruiz
"Rudy Ruiz's Valley of Shadows haunts with its trenchant historical accuracy woven dazzlingly with magical real elements that make this borderland Western horror leap off the page. Indeed, this powerful story wriggled into my heart and gut, like a snake seeking shelter in the scorched desert earth. Unsettling and uplifting, both. Filled with ghosts both literal and metaphorical in a desolate place overflowing with unforgettable characters whose stories are woven by a masterful storyteller, Ruiz's Valley of Shadows is searing, incisive, and, at times, utterly terrifying."
