In Eberville, Louisiana, a widowed mother weeps over the recent death of her son.
People are calling the tragedy an accident. Stella Voss, the boy's mother, is screaming murder. When the town's sheriff is unable to prove her suspicions correct, Stella takes matters into her own hands. And support is only a letter away from her mailbox.
Rumored to be one of the last of the Moss Hill Witches, Ariel Bordeaux is possibly Stella's answer for revenge. Ariel agrees to Stella's wishes only in exchange for information leading to a shotgun-wielding psychopath who's been mailing her threatening letters from Eberville. Ariel knows she must stop him before he fulfills his evil desires.
"Dear Arial," takes readers to a small town crowded with as many bars as churches, serves up as many twists and turns as a Louisiana back road, and brings to life colorful characters struggling to survive in a whirlwind of lies. The story calculates a mother's vengeance, a fool's battle to save his marriage, and reveals the bizarre combination of love and rage beating inside the black hearts of killers.
