The Story of Murderous Justice

Carl is a newly devoted family man.. He’s spent time in prison and he’s drifted, so now, he appreciates his loving wife, his toddler, and his baby. They share a cottage near the small forest town of Cedar Flats where there’s a general store, a saloon, and a diner. There’re also some bed and breakfasts to serve the fair-weather tourist crowd, but for the week of Carl’s life shattering event, the town’s cold and quiet. When the story opens, Carl runs an auto repair garage, practicing the trade he learned in prison. Business is good. Life is good. He’s content.

But all that changes in a moment.

Larry is the entitled brat of the county’s richest man. He literally gets away with murder because the town’s constable wears blinders when it comes to the McGuire clan. Something in the murder tweaks the interest of two Midwest FBI agents who have been following a serial killer. Maybe they’d best head out that way and take a look. Carl hopes their outside influence may convince the local lawman to look amongst the townsfolk for the killer; but beyond the constable’s inability, corruption and collusion fester.

For Carl, competing needs drive him. He grieves in loneliness, but he also rages toward the red line of vengeance. Larry will pay for his impunity, but as of yet, Carl is not a murderer.
That, of course, is subject to change.
