From out of a shadowy backwoods hollow echoes a dark threat from the past, nearly a century lost and forgotten.
The rural town of Harmony, Tennessee, possessed a disturbing secret; a secret so ancient that most of its residents were completely unaware of it. Even the last survivors of a vigilante raid long ago have filed the tragic events of that autumn night away, totally unaware of the evil that remains, dormant, but forever patient, among the tall pines and thick-leaved kudzu of a place known only as Hell Hollow.
There it would have remained, unrevealed, if not for a handful of unknowing participants. Four kids, bored for excitement during one of the hottest summers on record; a killer on the run, dodging his latest atrocity; and a rape victim on a deadly mission - scarred in both body and mind all have a hand in bringing forth an unspeakable evil from the dark woods of Hell Hollow.
He is a skeletal figure in top hat and tails, brandishing a handful of magical cards and a patented elixir that was brewed in the very depths of Purgatory.

As if told by your favorite front-porch-story-tellin' Southern grandpappy, this tale will leave you breathless. The narrator is excellent for the charm of this tale, and the story is near-perfect. Ronald Kelly outdid himself. If you like this one, pick up his short story collections and The Dark'Un too. I really hope we'll be getting more of Ronald Kelly's novels on Audible soon. VERY soon.
Plot in a nutshell: Kids band together to fight an evil force.
And it's GOOD!
I recommend listening to this on your headphones while swinging on your porch swing and sipping sweet iced tea on a collection of summer evenings.
