Really good book.

Cop (Jack McGarvey) gets shot up confronting drugged up punk in Los Angeles, losing the second partner in less than a year. Jack is in rehab for months, while his wife & child struggle with loss of income and general crap of LA.

The father of the Jack's deceased first partner dies confronting an evil entity in rural Montana, and it turns out the father has willed his ranch (which he had inherited only 8 years earlier) to Jack.

Jack & family move to the ranch in Montana and over the course of a couple weeks have their own confrontations with the evil entity, resulting in a hair thin victory.

I believe Winter Moon is an extended metaphor for struggling with our own inner demon of hate and uncaring.
