DED

By nightfall, Clay and George are tied up in jail. They can't move. They can't speak. They can do nothing but listen to the boy, outside, screaming for his life.

Yes, things are bad for Clay and George.

And they're only going to get worse.

    If you have never had the opportunity to be introduced to Swart

    If you have never had the opportunity to be introduced to Swartwood and Silva working together (or separately) I have to admit I’m almost a little jealous. Because you will be meeting 2 writers that are a definite gift to people that like a good story. Reading their work is rather like walking into a local, familiar bar and seeing the person you hope to spend the rest of your life with. Then, if you are extremely lucky, you are still with them many years later and they can still deliver. Luckily for us, neither Robert nor David have been destroyed by the publishing industry, or burned out so they are just churning out pap for the masses just for the money.
    This book reads fast at only 151 pages, but manages to leave you with more story than is just carried in the words. There is a wonderfully complete world that is built on our world during the days of the westward expansion. This includes justice, vengeance, shoot outs, corruption, murder and a different twist on the zombie idea. What starts out looking like a typical “dusty trails” western turns into a trip into the darkest parts of the human psyche and what we would do in our pain.
    Luckily for me, I was able to get one of the beautiful, signed, limited edition copies originally available through Thunderstorm Books (now sold out, but they have some other beautifully bound books available). So, the rest of you will just have to settle for the copies more readily available through Amazon as a print or e-book. Sadly, David B. Silva has “walked the sky” so is no longer available to provide us with even more stories, luckily he left behind many books for us to continue to enjoy. Happily, Robert Swartwood is still with us to feed our desire for more good tales.

    I loved this book from beginning to end. It had a great feeling of suspense, which any horror story should have. Overall, a good read.

    Plot spoilers

    Plot spoilers ruined the book with their reveal of the entire story. Learn to write a review and not a book report. Just a few lines to state if its good or not is a review, 10-12 inches of a post is a rewrite of the book. Learn the difference.
