The Fever Kill by Tom Piccirilli

ISBN: 978-0-9855786-5-7

Crease is going back to his quaint, quiet hometown of Hangtree. It’s where his father, the sheriff, met ruin in the face of a scandal involving the death of a kidnapped little girl and her missing ransom. It’s where Crease was beaten, jailed, and kicked clear of the town line ten years earlier. The town still has a taste for his blood and secrets it wants to keep. Crease has a single hope; a raw and raging fever driving him toward the truth that might just burn him up along the way.
