Every year, it seemed, Reverend Baxter killed off another member of his immediate family. He got away with it thanks to a charismatic country lawyer and some voodoo magic. But a family will only stay hunted for so long before one of them decides to fight back, voodoo or no voodoo.
No one was more obsessed with the story than perhaps the most famous writer in the world, Louella Harper. She traveled to Jackson City to research a book, but The Reverend—as it was to be titled—was never published. Louella eventually passed away at the age of eighty-nine. Her manuscript was never found.
But on May 7, Chris Hope—Louella's number one fan—will publish all ten chapters of the book for the first time. What happened to that manuscript? Why didn't she publish the book? What secrets of the Reverend's story have never before been revealed? And, how did Louella Harper's manuscript get into the hands of Chris Hope?
The answers lie within the pages of Blood Cries.
