Showdown at Crossings
by M. K. Theodoratus
Ebe loved the peaceful live of his isolated mountain community until abrasive newcomers started raising vicious guard dogs. The newcomers terrorize the locals, and Ebe finds himself in their sights along with an old family friend because they oppose their abusive ways. When the 'dog-farmers' murder a local healer/magic-worker, Ebe must defeat the demons if he's to regain his self-respect.
