In Winter Range, the intimate details of ranching and small-town life are woven into the suspenseful story of three people struggling to survive, to belong, and to love in the chillingly bleak landscape of eastern Montana. Ike Parsons is a small-town sheriff whose life is stable and content; his wife Pattiann is a rancher’s daughter with a secret past. But when Ike tries to help a hard-luck cattleman named Chas Stubblefield, he triggers Chas’s resentment and finds his home and his wife targeted by a plot for revenge.

“Brilliant, beautifully written...Davis’s skill brings wintry Montana alive.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred)
