Hunting antelope in southern Texas, Llewelyn Moss comes across the scene of a drug deal gone bad. Several men are dead and Moss finds a stash of heroin along with over two million dollars in cash. Even though he knows that whoever lost the money will stop at nothing to reclaim it, Llewelyn takes the cash and goes home to his wife, Carla Jean, and tells her to pack her stuff, they are now on the run.
Texas Sheriff Bell and a dangerous assasin named Anton Chigurh are both on Moss's trail. The violent and bloody chase runs along the U.S./Mexico border and occasionally crosses it. Readers are left guessing what Moss will be forced to do next in order to survive as a hunted man.
