The Fever Kill
by Tom Piccirilli
Crease is going back to his quaint, quiet hometown of Hangtree, where his father the sheriff met ruin in the face of a scandal involving the death of a kidnapped little girl and her missing ransom. It's where crease was beaten, jailed, and kicked clear of the town line ten years earlier.
Crease has a single hope; a raw and raging fever driving him toward the truth that might just burn him up.
