The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones

Lewis Clark and his friends belong to the American Blackfeet Nation. They trespass into the elders’ Montana hunting grounds on an expedition. Lewis has trouble killing a young pregnant elk.  Jump forward a decade and he is living with his wife Peta when the trauma of that event haunts him. His beloved dog Harley is killed under strange circumstances and the creeping horror of a sadistic revenge from a supernatural being is captivating. The conclusion is dazzling. Jones is fantastic at writing horror. His portrayal of Lewis and his friends, who have a foot in both the traditional and current world and consequent apprehension about their place in the present, is superb. This is one of the best horror books written in recent years.
