Ongoing Series - Updated Nov 23, 2013  
 

GENRE: Contemporary, Crime, Fiction, Suspense

24,850 words; Complete Novella - Ninth draft, but still not yet finely polished . . . More work to come but still readable, with all elements in place.

Both lines of the first-person narrator’s Appalachian Mountain families’ are moonshiners going back generations, and as he tells it, “My uncles all were outlaws, every last one of them, and daddy was, too.  They weren’t lazy.  They knew what hard work was, and were eager to avoid it . . .”  

The narrator’s daddy and his mother’s daddy were the biggest obstacles to circumvent in any situation that developed, and surrounding those two, one could always count on situations developing.  They made life difficult for people inside and out of the family, but they served the big fish that swim near the surface, the power elite of Mesach County.  Even after the end of Prohibition, their special services remained valuable.  As was clear that he would from the beginning, daddy finally took things too far.  Something had to give, and the end began at Oblivion Bridge . . .
