Sick as our Secrets
Jim Christopher, author
Hawk’s life is a secret. Wanted for murder, he hides from the law on a marijuana plantation in the Texas hill country. The violence of his past pales against the depravities he endures on the farm: dangerous and miraculous secrets he must protect if he wants to survive. Then a cunning stranger arrives bearing a grudge from Hawk’s past. The outsider unleashes his sinister preternatural ability in a frantic lunge for the farm’s most innocent soul. As the bloody standoff erupts between the dark interloper and Hawk’s motley family, the deepest shadows of the farm reveal themselves—death refusing the dead while the living struggle to survive. Betraying the farm’s secrets will cost Hawk his freedom. Keeping them will cost the lives of those he loves. The choice that abandoned Hawk on the farm presses him once more: save himself, or save his family.
