From the author of the international bestseller The Book Thief and new novel Bridge of Clay.

"You're a bit of a lonely bastard, aren't you?" said Rube.

"Yeah," I answered, "I guess I am."

But Cameron Wolfe is hungry. He's sick of being the filthy, torn, half-smiling, half-scowling underdog.

He's finally met a girl.

He's got words in his spirit.

And now he's out to prove that there's nothing more beautiful than an underdog who's willing to stand up.

PRAISE FOR WHEN DOGS CRY
