From the bestselling, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Road comes a "profoundly disturbing and gorgeously rendered" novel (The Washington Post) that returns to the Texas-Mexico border, setting of the famed Border Trilogy.

The time is our own, when rustlers have given way to drug-runners and small towns have become free-fire zones. One day, a good old boy named Llewellyn Moss finds a pickup truck surrounded by a bodyguard of dead men. A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the law—in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell—can contain.

As Moss tries to evade his pursuers—in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives—McCarthy simultaneously strips down the American crime novel and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines.

No Country for Old Men
 is a triumph.

"McCarthy is nothing less than our greatest living writer, and this is a novel that must be read and remembered." - Houston Chronicle

"Expertly staged and pitilessly lighted... It feels like a genuine diagnosis of the postmilennial malady, a scary illumination of the oncoming darkness." - Time

"A narrative that rips along like hell on wheels [on] a stage as big as Texas." - The New York Times Book Review
