Down The Dead Road
by David J. Nix
Death is stalking teenager "Cowboy", a lost child raised by a homeless woman. A shadowy character thwarts Death's repeated attempts on Cowboy's life, giving the boy the opportunity to search for his hidden origins, fall in love, and become the target of a brutal gang. The truth of his beginnings proves more astonishing than anything Cowboy has imagined, but might not be enough to save him.
