Longlisted for the 2017 Scotiabank Giller Prize

In the deep woods of the Maine borderlands, the legend of huntsman Pete Landry is still told around cottage campfires to scare children, a tragic story of love, lust, and madness. During the early summer of 1967, inseparable teenage beauties Sissy Morgan and Zaza Mulligan wander among the vacation cottages in the community of Boundary, drinking and smoking and swearing, attracting the attention of boys and men. First one, and then the other, goes missing, and both are eventually found dead in the forest. Have they been the victims of freak accidents? Or is someone hunting the young women of Boundary? And if there is a hunter, who might be next? The Summer of Love quickly becomes the Summer of Fear, and detective Stan Michaud, already haunted by a case he could not solve, is determined to find out what exactly is happening in Boundary before someone else is found dead.

A story of deep psychological power and unbearable suspense, Andrée A. Michaud's award-winning Boundary is an utterly gripping read about a community divided by suspicion and driven together by primal terror.

This is not a standard mystery. Horrific events are followed by searching, through the woods and lake, but also into the heart of the experience of the summer residents. Each relationship, between parent and child, husband and wife, brother and sister, close friend and outsider throws its shadow on the web of emotions and motives. No one exits unscathed.
