- A Novel
- By: Thomas Maltman
- Narrated by: Hillary Huber
- Length: 8 hrs and 24 mins
Set on the Minnesota prairies in 1987, during a drought season that is fostering the demise of the family farms, the story features two intertwining narrators: a father searching for answers after his son commits a heinous murder, and a pastor's wife who has returned to the town for mysterious reasons of her own. A penetrating look at small-town America, reminiscent of Russell Banks' Sweet Hereafter or Affliction, driven by a powerful murder mystery, Little Wolves is a literary triumph.

This is the first book I have read or listened to by Thomas Maltman; it is very well written and the audio book kept me very interested. The pastor's wife story kept me wanting more throughout. The murder story had a unexpected twist at the end.
The Little Wolves in this book are Coytes and play a significant part to the story of the book.
The audio book is narrated by a women with an american accent which I found (being British) quiet annoying at times; but I did get used to it after a bit.
A good book; I would recommend it.
