Medicine Creek, Kansas, has been slowly dying for the last century. A small, quiet place, the primary occupation is still farming, Main Street is a stretch of old and dusty businesses, and the nearest mall is 200 miles away. In a town where nothing changes, the community is terrified after a series of grisly murders takes place. Even more alarming, the bodies are displayed in bizarre tableaus. With the entire town in shock, FBI Agent Pendergast arrives from New Orleans to investigate. From the fields to the local caves, Pendergast discovers the remnants of a Prohibition-era moonshine operation and the truth behind one of the town's greatest mysteries: who was behind the Medicine Creek Massacre of 1865. Now, Pendergast must discover the twisted secret hiding within a four-generation Kansas family – before someone else is murdered.

Special Agent Pendergast and Constance Greene have been called to Exmouth, a small town on the wild Atlantic coast of Massachusetts, to investigate a seemingly innocuous theft. But what they discover at the crime scene changes the course of their investigation: a sealed burial chamber, complete with rusted leg irons, fragments of bone and claw marks on the inside-face of its bricks. Then a historian is found murdered in the desolate salt marshes that surround the town, his face mutilated, his body carved with arcane symbols. Exmouth has a grim history dating back to the aftermath of the Salem witch trials. And now a dark secret, centuries old, is rising to the surface.

I think of my writings as poetic observation, of my life, the world, nature. Written in a stream-of-consciousness technique, edited as I write, Spiritual, organic, feeling, empathetic to the human condition, evocative of the natural world. Some are songs or became songs. Music and art are always involved. Personal relationships, too.

This volume is the first book-length presentation of Hans Neleman's highly acclaimed, mystery-laden still lifes. It's a breathtaking collection of photo-collages, visual fireworks, full of mystery, poetry and the music of silence. The photographs selected include both early personal images and his award-winning professional work. His considerable talent is characterized by his ability to translate visual poetry and capture it on film. In his photographic still lifes he goes to work with the precision of an archeologist photographing discreet moments. Neleman records things, yet his photographs are more than mere records of reality - they are vivid images, replete with ecological, religious and symbolical elements. Neleman presents photographs of a world full of references to Picasso, Arp, Duchamp and Ernst and based on the premise that "you don't make art, you find it."
