A dead body is discovered amongst the ashes of a small homestead in the aftermath of a fire in the Kansas Flint Hills . . . but it does not appear the fire was the cause of death. When a family member goes missing shortly thereafter, and the sheriff’s department is slow to act, the Locke family takes matters into their own hands. As the Lockes piece together clues, a fiery and deadly climax becomes inevitable.
Unfolding in mere days, Hell’s Fire is a fast-paced Western adventure story featuring many characters that also appear in the author’s previous novels, Last Will and Medicine Wheel.
