The second novel in this terrific crime series from the No. 1 bestselling author.
Stephen Donaldson lived in India for 13 years with his father, a medical missionary, who worked extensively with lepers; it was here that he conceived the character of Thomas Covenant. He was awarded the John W Campbell Award as Best Writer of the Year for THE CHRONICLES OF THOMAS COVENANT, THE UNBELIEVER, which, with the sequel trilogy, became instant bestsellers. He is also the author of the fantasy duology Mordant's Need, the SF epic quintet THE GAP and a number of mysteries originally written under the pseudonym Reed Stephens. He won the World Fantasy Award in 2000.
"The settings ring true, and the characters have depth."
---"Booklist "on "The Man Who Risked His Partner"
"As he's done so vividly with Thomas Covenant, Donaldson uses Axbrewder as a vehicle to demonstrate that people, even at their lowest and most wretched, can find transcendence through community, concentration, and disciplined self-cultivation."
