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.
