World War II is winding down, and everyone thought the small Texas Hill Country town of Barnard, with its large population of German and German-heritage residents, had learned to live in peace—until young men start to disappear and a local German man, Lang, is discovered to be gay. Hatred of “the other” makes everyone tense, and a group of boys decide to take matters into their own hands. What follows is a tale of hatred, innocence lost, and brutality that will make you shake your head in wonderment about the innate cruelty of human beings. Not for the squeamish.
