Staff Reviews

“When I saw that we had the novel on our shelves, I grabbed it and
began reading immediately. The classic 1955 film of the same name
starring Robert Mitchum has long been one of my favorite films, but I
had no idea it began as a novel. This dark tale of an evil preacher that
kills rich widows is an absolute masterpiece of the Southern Gothic
I’m discovering, as I read, that the film adaption is one of those rare occasions where the movie is just as good as the book!”

— Stephanya


When Ben Harper goes to the gallows for a bank robbery killing, he leaves his young children John and Pearl to hide the $10,000. Soon a strange preacher comes to town and claims to have known their daddy. He preaches the word of the Lord, but darkness lurks in his heart, a knife lies in his pocket and he wants that money. Davis Grubb's haunting Gothic masterpiece flows through the rural Depression-era landscape with all the lyrical magic of a fairytale as John and his younger sister flee their malevolent hunter to a terrifying end.
