In this webinar, recorded August 25, 2020, David Heska Wanbli Weiden discusses his debut thriller, Winter Counts, in conversation with Kasey Jernigan. Winter Counts is a groundbreaking thriller about a vigilante on a Native American reservation who embarks on a dangerous mission to track down the source of a heroin influx.
“Winter Counts is a marvel. It’s a thriller with a beating heart and jagged teeth. This book is a brilliant meditation on power and violence, and a testament to just how much a crime novel can achieve. Weiden is a powerful new voice. I couldn’t put it down.” — Tommy Orange, author of There There
“I’ve been waiting most of my life for this book without realizing it. Winter Counts is a knowing, authentic, closely observed novel about modern-day Lakotas that rings absolutely true, warts and all. The sense of place is breathtaking and raw. It’s a hell of a debut.” — C.J. Box, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Long Range
