Short Story Collection
Meadows Ford, Nebraska: where justice can be brutal and swift, where long dead secrets won’t stay in the grave, and where just about everyone has something very real to fear. From the author of the acclaimed western collection Devils Nest, comes eight stories of innocent criminals, guilty bystanders, mob hit men, dead girls and small town cops trying to make a difference. With an introduction by Bill Crider.
Meadows Ford is the kind of town you’d motor right past on the highway, but it’s well worth a visit — so long as Richard Prosch is your guide. It turns out the town’s as full of secrets and mysteries as the human heart, and the stories in this collection explore them with an incisiveness and humanity that’s all too rare.
