内容简介
"Magennis is a yarn spinner with a passion for the southwestern wilderness, the people who inhabit unlimited space, and drama created in a setting that allows for complete freedom. A book that will take you to a wild place, seldom visited and captivatingly portrayed."
—JEFFERY RENARD ALLEN, author of Song of the Shank and Rails Under My Back


"In Alibi Creek, Bev Magennis captures the grit and sinew of men and women raised in the hardscrabble West. The land produces both good and evil, and Magennis's characters as well as her story are as authentic as the sagebrush of the western landscape."
—SANDRA DALLAS, New York Times bestselling author of True Sisters


"…a quiet novel about boundaries and belonging and facing up to when the old excuses no longer wash."
—CHARLIE QUIMBY, author of Monument Road


"This stunning debut transforms and arrests the reader, the story stays with you long after you turn the last page."
—LIBBY FLORES, PEN Center USA


Following a two-year prison stint, charming and wily Walker returns to his family's New Mexico ranch, where his pious older sister Lee Ann is busy caring for their mother, raising two sons, and grappling with unethical workplace demands. Walker's illegal activities quickly incite chaos in the town and Lee Ann's marriage, leading to drastic transformations of beliefs, identities, and relationships.
