A novella by Scott Nicholson
When John Moretz takes a reporter job in the Appalachian town of Sycamore Shade, a crime spree erupts that boosts circulation and unsettles the people. Then a body is discovered, and Moretz happens to be one of the first on the scene.
As police discover more murder victims, Moretz comes under suspicion while his editor struggles between cashing in on sensational news and sidelining Moretz until the crime wave is over. When police suspect a serial killer is at work, the newspaper gains wide acclaim and more reporters come to cover the crimes. The editor falls in love with one of those reporters, who wants inside information on Moretz.
But John Moretz stays one step ahead of the other reporters, the police, and seemingly even the killer himself.
A novella of about 21,000 words, the equivalent of 100 book pages.
