This is the third book in Burke's Billy Bob Holland series. It was a good read. Burke is one of my all time favorite authors.

Scary and suspenseful. However, this hero was not my favorite type. When he was most needed he broke down crying uncontrollably (over guilty feelings to do with his daughter), with the Boneman in the next room. I put it down and finally went back to it and finished it. It really was a good read.
This book, orginaly printed in 1907, is one of my all time favorites. I've read it several times over the years. At one point in my life I lived in Missouri not too far from the seting of this wonderful book. If you haven't read it, I highly reccomend it.
The history of Shepherd of the Hills in Branson, Missouri.
The beginning was a chilling depection of one of the main characters as he got out of the first tower after it was destroyed and followed him to his ex wife's home. After that I guess I just didn't get it. It is fragmented, the story kept going back and forth in time. I found it depressing. It was not an easy read.
