Comac McCarthy is considered one of America’s greatest living writers. His epic novel No Country for Old Men, released in 2005, traces the violent consequences of a single decision which soon spiral horribly out of control. This is the dark but striking story of Llewelyn Moss, who goes on the run after being tempted by the bounty of a drug deal gone awry. A thrilling sequence of events ensues as a ruthless hitman and benevolent sheriff trail him in a nail-biting and suspenseful chase that will decide Moss’s fate one way or another. It was recently made into a critically acclaimed film by the Coen brothers, which won four Academy Awards. This is the third Cormac McCarthy novel to be released on Naxos AudioBooks this year.

Cormac McCarthy: No Country for Old Men (Abridged)

I sent one boy to the gas-chamber at Huntsville.

Moss sat with the heels of his boots dug into the volcanic gravel…

Moss left the door open and slung the H&K over his shoulder.

Late in the day he reached the ranch road he'd come down…

When he started the truck and pulled out onto the highway…

He kept his eye on the plain below as he climbed along the slope.

At a bench near the rim he stopped and lay on his belly…

I read the papers every mornin.

When he pulled up in front of the sheriff's office in Sonora…

Chigurh crossed the Pecos River just north of Sheffield Texas…

When Chigurh got to Dryden it was about eight o'clock.

The bus pulled into Fort Stockton at quarter to nine…

When they rode up side by side to the car, it was sitting…

They walked out between the trucks. Bell stood and looked…

Once inside the trailer, Chigurh stood…

The bus pulled into Del Rio in the early afternoon…

In the room he unwrapped the shotgun…

I was sheriff of this county when I was twenty-five.

By Wednesday half the state of Texas was on its way to Sanderson.

Chigurgh picked up the signal from the transponder…

When Bell walked into the office, Tobert came over…

He took two steps back and stood, his hands at shoulder level.

Moss handed him the bills and unshouldered the zipper bag…

It was almost a three-hour drive to Odessa…

He watched her. 'How do you think this is goin to end?'

He was asleep in his bed when the phone rang.

When Wells got to the hotel the plastic ribbons were gone.

Llewellyn Moss woke in a ward with sheeting hung between him…

'What's his name?'

Wells sat looking at Moss in his hospital bed.

He pulled into a motel outside of Hondo and got a room…

Some two miles past the junction of 481 and 57…

'It started before that,' he said.

Moss woke from a troubled dream.

He left before daylight dressed in the muslin hospital gown…

I won't talk about the war neither.

Chigurh pulled up across the street and shut off the engine.

He spent the night in a Rodeway Inn on highway 90…

When Bell got home she had supper waiting.

Moss set the case in the booth and eased himself in after it.

They got in and he set the case between them…

Later he went out and drove down to the quick stop.

She watched him. To see what else he would say.

The Barracuda pulled into a truckstop outside of Balmorhea…

The sheriff and the deputy were questioning a man…

Chigurh checked into a motel on the eastbound interstate.

He'd knocked on other doors with the same sort of message…

The funeral was on a cold and windy day in March.

'I'm sorry.' Chigurh smiled. 'It's a hard thing to understand…'

The car that hit Chigurh in the intersection…

'I always thought,' said the old man, 'that when I got older…'

He filled the sink and added a scoop of soap powder.

Bell sat there with his hands crossed on the oilcloth.

He said I was bein hard on myself.

When he walked in the house the phone was ringing.

Catron had called the boy and talked to him…

I got Molly to run down his relatives…

When Bell got home she wasn't there, but her car was.

I'll wake Loretta up just bein awake myself.

It was a cold blustery day when he walked out of the courthouse…
