"Sunsetter is high-grade prairie noir suffused with literary atmosphere. LeBlanc writes with empathy and a poet's precision." -- Sam Wiebe, award-winning author of Hell and Gone and Sunset and Jericho
"Suspenseful and narratively surprising, LeBlanc uses sharp prose to tell a story of friendship, revenge, and reclaiming agency amidst corruption and unjust systems. Sunsetter illustrates the violence, racism, and toxic masculinity found in rural prairie towns that have been developed by industry, as well as the beauty of the bonds between the people who have to survive there. Sunsetter paints the prairies in all its complex strokes, and with every twist and turn, we are reminded that courage often lives in the under-recognized." -- Jessica Johns, author of Bad Cree
"Sunsetter is a blast of fast-paced literary fiction, tumbled up with some great characters and a searching generosity for all those left-behind towns and their left-behind people. I read this book so fast, the pages nearly couldn't keep up." -- Michael Christie, author of Greenwood
"Vividly written in precise prose, Sunsetter's menace and momentum comes from Curtis LeBlanc's capacity to create memorable, real characters." -- Naben Ruthnum, author of Helpmeet and Find You in the Dark
"The action moves slowly at first, but builds to an explosive conclusion. LeBlanc's doomed young people put a human face on the horrendous impact of the drug crisis." -- Publishers Weekly
