Harmland is a collection of noir horror stories by the author of Killing Trail and Cold in the Light. It contains:
Whiskey, Guns, and Sin: They'd all forgotten Jessi. As the motorcycle landed, Jessi sidestepped and clubbed her pistol across the rider’s face. He wore no helmet and the barrel of the Smith & Wesson tore him a wider mouth.
The Finest Cut: Two lovers are found buried in a swampy grave. The worst is yet to come.
The Grey Inside: Scientific research can be murder.
The Toad: He thought it was just a large toad until it killed a bird. Then he made the mistake of following it into the woods.
