A Life for a Life
So begins this story of suspense, mystery, and self-discovery set in 1985 in the small mountain town of Laurel Falls, N.C. After decades as a crime reporter in Washington, D.C., Della Kincaid thinks she’s moved away from all the violence. But a walk in the woods—and the body she finds—change everything. The sheriff quickly declares suicide. Not so fast, Della counters. She’s spent her life searching for the truth, and she’s not about to stop now. Without her usual sources, she teams up with new friends, including her neighbor—Abit Bradshaw, a teenager struggling to find his rightful place in the world. Along the way, they encounter a slew of interesting characters, including the best one of all—the lush natural setting of the N.C. mountains.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Bumpkin
Rudy-Bob Hortmann has never quite gotten the hang of making friends. He doesn’t much like peopling, mostly preferring the company of his pot-bellied pig, Ethel Squeaks to humanoid types. But there’s one exception. Rudy-Bob loves kids. So for Christmas every year he gives himself a present. He plays Santa at the annual Deer Hollow Christmas party. Only this year, Rudy-Bob doesn’t make it out of the Santa suit when the Pageant is done. Instead, Deputy Sheriff Arno Willager finds Rudy-Bob literally chillin’ in a snowbank, his bulbous nose flashing red through the snow.
