Death in the Black Patch

In 1906 Kentucky, Wes Wilson stands in his freshly plowed tobacco field. This crop is his life’s blood, and Wes is determined that nothing—not the devious tobacco buyer; the ever-present Night Riders; or the cousin hiding a deadly secret—will stand in his way. But the secrets and lies which plague the community smother Wes and grow more intense the longer he takes to decide what to do with his crop. The conflict erupts and soon rages out of control with a result both surprising and tragic.
