Kit Golden Eagle is running. From poverty, from abuse. Forced to live by his wits, the Ojibwe teen slowly succumbs to living a life of hate and lies.
Josiah Foxglove is given a second chance when he takes over his family's spread in the shadow of the Snowy Range. A veteran of the Gulf War, he came back broken in body and spirit.
Marcus Colton buried his long-time lover and best friend three years ago. Lonely and still grieving, Marcus finds solace in keeping his business afloat but that doesn't help him get through the long, dark nights.
Three damaged souls converge as violence wracks the small community of Centurion, WY. The town protects its own so when Kit Golden Eagle shows up, it’s easy to place blame on the stranger. It looks open and shut, but for Josiah and Marcus the facts simply don’t add up.
Something’s rotten in Centurion, something that smacks of a hate crime…
Invited to Marcus’ quarters above the store, Josh finds himself falling into the hell of remembrance.
There was no place to set the mug, so Josh leaned down and placed it on the floor, moving gingerly to avoid cramping. By the time he was upright and considering how he was going to exit the trap of soft, saggy cushions, Marcus had placed a hand on his arm, gently but firmly holding him in place.
“I’m listening, Josh.”
The man had no idea how that simple touch set his alarms ringing. Whenever he thought he had his symptoms under control, something innocuous, like a friend extending a kindness, would light him up and rocket him back in time. He hated losing it, hated what it did to those around him, forcing them to tippy-toe around him, having them forever fearful of triggering the dam break.
He lived his life in saturation—mostly of colors and sound. Sometimes a scent or a movement caught out of the corner of his eye would bring on the sweats and the gnawing ache that pummeled his gut. He’d want to run and wasn’t that the biggest joke? When it lit him up, running was the very last thing he could do, his body shutting down and making a mockery of the effort when he tried.
From a great distance he listened to the drone…
Tell me what to do. Josh? I don’t know what to do. How can I help?
You can’t Marcus, I wish you could but you can’t…
