Short Summary

He wound his way through the scrub trees, blackberry briars, and thistles, paying no mind to them pulling at his clothes. This trophy would complete his collection of victims buried on Killer’s Knob. The last to lie in this barren Kentucky patch of ground.


Whirling, Eric fired, striking Buck in the chest and propelling him backward into the concrete wall. Aiming at the killer’s face, Buck squeezed the trigger. He kept firing until the pistol was empty. Then he yielded to the darkness enfolding him. From far away he heard voices, then nothing.
