From "a master American storyteller" (TIME), Bullet Park traces the fateful intersection of two men: Eliot Nailles, a nice fellow who loves his wife and son to blissful distraction, and the man who, after half a lifetime of drifting, settles down in Bullet Park with one objective—to murder Nailles's son.

“A magnificent work of fiction.… A novel to pore over, move around in, live with." —The New York Times
