To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour.

 - Winston Churchill


Horrible things aren’t supposed to happen in wholesome, sleepy little country towns. It is the sworn duty of Deputy Daniel Wood to look closely into such matters. The little farm town of Bole has no police force, and the local sheriff station has a front porch with a swing and a soft drink vending machine. Two men have disappeared recently, their ultimate fate a mystery until one of their bodies turns up horribly mutilated. Now a third man has disappeared.

All towns have secrets; but the ghastly history hidden away in this tight knit little town has now begun to erupt into what might be murder. Deputy Wood is newly promoted to detective, and is proud of the trust and respect that title implies.  Swallowing a bit of that pride, he turns to his old mentor and friend Joe Gwyn. Joe trained him, and got him through his first year on the force; but now Deputy Wood must convince Joe to take his former trainee seriously as a detective and as a superior officer.

When the horror of the past begins to reveal itself to him, and he comes to understand the events of the present, Deputy Wood must decide if these are the acts of an avenging angel, or a dark hatred from long ago better left un-roused. He must confront his own ideas about right and wrong, good and bad, and decide what kind of man he really is.

Redemption is a dark mystery of approximately 62,000 words.
