In a second volume of creepy good tales from master storyteller Chris Rogers, the bony grasp of Death reaches out again to draw you to the lurking shadows of the dark side. You'll meet a fledgling serial killer about to escape incarceration; a lady cop whose professional skepticism jeopardizes her marriage; a college student earning tuition the old fashioned way; a retired homicide detective whose hound-dog sense sniffs out the wrong murderer; a Texas Ranger who discovers a place where bullets are useless; a country dweller who angers an army; and a boy who uses creative chicanery to protect his sister. In the spirit of The Twilight Zone, Rogers takes you tripping down a road where endings make a sharp turn into the unexplained and often into the hot breath of Death. A lover of characters, word play and ironic twists, Rogers spins her stories from a lexicon of secret places and hidden motives, from a tilted imagination and a skewed vision of justice. But one caution: her thought-provoking tales are addictive.

About the Author
Chris Rogers lives in Central Texas on a half-acre of oak trees, yaupon scrub and thorny greenbriar, with too many weeds, too many buzzards, far too many bugs, a ten-year-old car and a desk piled with bills. Creative inspiration, she calls it, and uses it all in her stories from time to time.
