He thought it was going to be an easy life.
When ex-DC cop Paul Stoeffel first took over as police chief in the quiet West Virginian resort town, he believed he was in for a gentle ride into retirement.
Things change radically when they find a child cruelly murdered in the gloomy woods alongside Dead Fall Back, a place already tainted with a sad history.
As the bodies stack up, events rapidly escalate into a situation that puts the whole isolated town into peril.
Surrounded by deep forest and cut off from the outside world Chief Stoeffel and his small off-season police team, find themselves standing alone against something more sinister and far reaching than the youngster’s murder. It is a dangerous situation that can only lead inevitably to a violent and bloody confrontation.

About the Author
It’s not such a big step from pictures to writing. And that’s how it started out for me. I’ve illustrated more Western book covers than I care to mention and been doing it for a long time. No hardship, I hasten to add, I love the genre and have since a kid, although originally I made my name painting the cover art for other people, now at least, I manage to create covers for my own books. A long-term closet writer, only comparatively recently, with a family grown and the availability of self-publishing have I managed to be able to write and get my stories out there. As I did when illustrating, research counts a lot and has inspired many of my Westerns and Thrillers to have a basis in historical fact or at least weave their tale around the seeds of factual content. Having such a visual background, mostly it’s a matter of describing the pictures I see in my head and translating them to the written page. I guess that’s why one of my early four-star reviewers described the book like a ‘Western movie, fast paced and full of action.’ I enjoy writing them; I hope folks enjoy reading the results.
