Black River: a novel
Wes has been away from Black River ever since the riot. He grew up in this small Montana town, encircled by mountains, and, like his father before him and most of the men there, he made his living as a Corrections Officer. A talented, natural fiddler, he found solace and joy in his music. But during that riot Bobby Williams changed everything for Wes -- undermining his faith and taking away his ability to play.
How can a man who once embodied evil ever come to good? How can he pay for such crimes with anything but his life? As Wes considers his own choices and grieves for all he's lost, he must decide what he believes and whether he can let Williams walk away.
With spare prose and stunning detail, S. M. Hulse drops us deep into the heart and darkness of an American town.

This novel of sorrow and suspense, set in rural Montana, is "a complex and powerful story—put Black River on the must-read list" (The Seattle Times).
Wes Carver returns to his hometown—Black River, Montana—with two things: his wife's ashes and a letter from the parole board. The convict who once held him hostage during a prison riot is up for release.
For years, Wes earned his living as a correction officer and found his joy playing the fiddle. But the uprising shook Wes's faith and robbed him of his music; now he must decide if his attacker should walk free.
With "lovely rhythms, spare language, tenderness, and flashes of rage," S. M. Hulse shows us the heart and darkness of an American town, and one man's struggle to find forgiveness in the wake of evil (Los Angeles Review of Books).
