Butcher’s Knoll is an isolated town that you can only visit once: as soon as you leave its borders, you will lose all memory of having come to it, and will never be able to find it again...no matter what—or who—you left behind.
Years ago, Maxwell Cruncher came to town as a child, seeking refuge from his abusive father. Now, as an adult, he is hated by the townsfolk—including the woman he loves. But leaving town will mean losing all memory of half his life. His heartbreak is only exacerbated by the arrival of the Goodwins, a happy couple whose nighttime pleasures become legendary...and who Cruncher becomes desperate to separate forever.
