Ein tragikomischer Roman über zwei Auftragsmörder und ihre blutige, bizarre Reise durch Amerikas Westen im Jahre 1851 Hermann Kermit Warm wird sterben.

Die beiden machen sich auf den Weg von Oregon nach Kalifornien, wo sie Warm aufspüren sollen. Ihre Reise durch den vom Goldrausch geprägten amerikanischen Westen wird allerdings immer wieder von bizarren und blutigen Begegnungen unterbrochen. Zugleich zeigt sich, wie verschieden die beiden Brüder sind: Charlie ein eiskalter, skrupelloser Killer - Eli ein Grübler, der sich mit geradezu existenziellen Fragen beschäftigt. Er beginnt an seinem Beruf zu zweifeln - und an seinem Partner. Doch als die beiden schliesslich in Kalifornien eintreffen, nehmen die Ereignisse eine höchst unerwartete Wendung ... Patrick deWitt wurde 1975 auf Vancouver Island in Kanada geboren. Er lebte unter anderem in Kalifornien, Washington und Oregon. Nach 'Ablutions: Notes for a Novel' ist 'Die Sisters Brothers' ist sein zweiter Roman. Er war für den Man Booker Prize sowie den Giller Prize nominiert, wurde mit dem Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize ausgezeichnet und sowohl von Publishers Weekly als auch der Washington Post zu den besten Romanen des Jahres gezählt. Patrick deWitt lebt heute mit seiner Frau und seinem Sohn in Portland, Oregon
