David Heska Wanbli Weiden's Winter Counts from Simon and Schuster is the multi award nominated debut novel that's taken the US by storm and will be released in the UK on 30th September.
Join us as we talk to David and some special guest authors who have read this tour-de-force of crime fiction.
David's novel is a bracingly honest look at a long-ignored part of American life and a twisting, turning story that’s as deeply rendered as it is thrilling.
Virgil Wounded Horse is the local enforcer on the Rosebud Native American Reservation in South Dakota. When justice is denied by the American legal system or the tribal council, Virgil is hired to deliver his own punishment, the kind that’s hard to forget.
WINTER COUNTS has been nominated for the 2021 Edgar Award for Best First Novel, and is the winner of the Anthony, Thriller, Lefty, Barry, and Macavity Awards for Best First Novel. The novel was also awarded the Spur Awards for Best Contemporary Novel and Best First Novel, and the Tillie Olsen Award for Creative Writing.
