Barry Graham is the author of WHEN IT ALL COMES DOWN TO DUST, described as “one of the great post-realist novels” by the French magazine TRANSFUGE.
Laura Ponto wouldn’t mind watching Frank del Rio being strapped to the executioner’s gurney, even if her job is to find mitigating evidence in death penalty cases. Frank’s not a client, but a long time ago he did unspeakable things to children – and Laura was one of them.
Now Frank is being released on parole, and they will both learn that their lives are still intertwined. Their story will end in a place even darker than it began in a shattering noir novel of suspense, sex, violence, love and death in the urban desert of Phoenix, Arizona.
