The Company mining town of Thurber, Texas has fallen off the map. Some want to keep it that way. Others seek the truth. But its plague-infected residents have a mind of their own. "Forget emergency landing procedures. When reading Twitch and Die! all one can do is hold on for dear life." "Disguised as double-fisted pulp fiction, the Lost DMB Files resurrect a forgotten history. The life's work of author David Mark Brown, mysteriously disappeared in the 1930's, has only recently taken on new life surrounding the controversy that these "Lost" files are more than mere fiction. Let the reader decide for her or himself." ~ Professor Jim Buckner, Dept. Geology University of Texicas, Austin Two populist Texan folk-heros, Chancho Villarreal and James Starr, embark on a mission of political endorsement, but what they find is a hill country rife with fear and rumor. A so-called Angel of Death is executing individuals infected by a terrible plague, and the company mining town at the epicenter has gone dark. It's up to Chancho to navigate a world of shifting allegiances while uncovering the truth about a plague and its infected who refuse to die quietly. "If there was a top to be over, Twitch and Die! removed it completely, and with electrifying results."
