In this gripping, wise, and darkly funny tale of suspense, Sheriff Lucian Wing confronts a series of trials that test his work, his marriage, and the settled order of his life.
Wing is an experienced, practical man who enforces the law in his corner of Vermont with a steady hand and a generous tolerance. But when local tearaway Sean ‘Superboy’ Duke starts to get tangled up with a group of major league Russian criminals, things start to go awry in the sheriff’s small, protected domain.  With an ambitious and aggressive deputy snapping at his heels and a domestic crisis of his own to confront, Wing must call on all the personal resources he has cultivated during his working life: patience, tact, and – especially - humour.

Reviews

'Wonderful... every paragraph a gem. Freeman - like Cormac McCarthy, like Annie Proulx - shows us the awkward realness of such lives, and does it with humour, with wry perception, with great style' R. J. Ellory

'I loved this book. A small miracle - sharp, sly, moving and full of heart' Nick Cave

'All That I Have shares many small-town, big-crime themes with Cormac McCarthy’s No Country for Old Men... it is impossible not to appreciate this spare, meditative and seamlessly crafted novel' The Times
