Gifts of a Dead Man
by Derek Davis
A man steers a 1953 Chevy pickup onto the lot at Marilyn’s Cafe and drops dead on the gravel. Who is he? What does he mean for a forgotten Midwestern town and The Heavenly Choir? It takes much travel for Millie and Pete to find what they’re not sure they’re looking for. In the end what counts is what the dead man has given to all the lives and places he’s touched.
