Diamond Dogs is Alan Watt’s L.A. Times bestselling novel and winner of France’s Prix Printemps for best foreign novel. Star quarterback Neil Garvin is the envy of other students in his Nevada high school – and is almost as cruel to them as his abusive father is to him. Then one night on a dark, isolated road outside of town, a random act of violence claims a life. Nothing, Neil swears, could be worse . . . until his father, the local sheriff, masterminds a cover-up. Emotionally deadened and wrestling with the mystery of his mother’s disappearance years ago, Neil must find his way out of his prison of fear and discover the one thing that can set him free.
