From award-winning author Alexander C. Irvine comes a compelling, fantastical riff on history and World War II. The Narrows takes place in Detroit, where Henry Forda€™s factories have been retooled for Americaa€™s grand war effort. But there are also more clandestine operations under waya€“including a top-secret effort to produce golemsa€“powerful beings fashioned from the eartha€“to destroy Nazis. Here lurk strange spies in unlikely placesa€“and a not-so-extraordinary man who is inadvertently poised at the bizarre, urgent center of it all. . . . Spared fighting in Europe because of a bum hand, Jared wishes he could join the cause, instead of mindlessly sifting clay to be made into golems. But there is something that preys on his dreams: the devilish dwarf known as the Nain Rouge. In his youth, Jared once actually saw the Dwarfa€“a chilling creature that shows itself to individuals just before their demise. Now the Nain Rouge appears to be coming back for Jared himself. Many have a profound interest in Jareda€™s childhood run-in with the Dwarfa€“including a German spy, Jareda€™s hateful foreman at the golem factory, and a shape-shifting Indian shaman. But what could a simple man who earns a meager living possibly have to do with espionage and dark deeds? While Jared toils invisibly in the bowels of Forda€™s plant, the answer is about to reveal itself in a cataclysm of mythic and sinister proportions.
