An old cowboy stares into the eyes of his dead wife and remembers a time before he knew her; a photojournalist and his terminally ill wife enjoy one last night together under the hunter's moon; a family wait for their son to return home from the civil war in Bosnia; and a dying man takes violent revenge against the people who ruined his life.

Crisp, heartfelt and clear-eyed, Katakis's debut short story collection bears comparison with those of the great American writers and demonstrates the enduring power of love in even the cruellest of environments. "Dangerous Men is mesmerizing. These are wonderful, devastating stories, filled with dread and death, yet suffused with decency and love.

I loved it." Ken Burns "Very violent and immensely readable, both deeply sad and deeply cathartic" Henry Marsh "Highly recommended for Steinbeck readers and others safe-sheltering from the dangerous men in Washington, D.C." Steinbeck Now "A work of great sensitivity and lyrical beauty." Raja Shehadeh
