“The Three-Legged Fox is at once a mystery and a keen study in contrast. Behind a continually shifting façade of adult civility, Dahlstrom’s characters revel in infidelity, betrayal, and misguided passions, resulting in trauma, pain, and ultimately murder. A finely-woven story, albeit one where the human threads are far more frayed than anyone realizes.”– Brent van Staalduinen, author of ‘Unthinkable’ and ‘Boy’
