A.D. Hopkins
The gravy train hasn’t stopped in the hollers of western Virginia for more than thirty years when Stony Shelor and Newcomb start their junior year. Jack draws Stony into his fantasy of being a private detective, all the intrigue feels like fun and games until a gunfight with a hillbilly boy almost gets them killed. The stakes rise even higher when the boys face off against the Ku Klux Klan.
