In 1937, Derrick Hardy went to work on the Desmond farm, hoping only to keep a little bread on the table and a few dollars in his pocket.  What he found instead was a family of monstrous tendencies and a penchant for violence.

Now, Derrick is on the run from a nation-wide manhunt.  He is suspected of kidnapping four of the Desmond children and there is no safe place for him to hide.

From a 2008 novella by Grady Richards, split up by chapter.

Nice work! I wonder how old you are? Sounds like you lived in this time, or is that just good writing? 
                              I also enjoy writing about those good ol' days.

@ElijahWillis Thank you, sir.  And yes, one of the few things I like about writing in first person point of view is the ability to utilize grammatical flaws as a part of narrative color.  Thanks for reading.
