The Devil in Kilgore, Texas is a suspenseful novel of historical fiction, recounting the lives of a poor, highly dysfunctional family during The Great Depression of the late 1920's. The central characters are three young children, two brothers and their girl cousin, who endeavor to survive the daunting crucible of those hard times and the neglect of their uncaring, self-absorbed parents. The raw telling of the nature of this abuse is dark and unflinching, yet truthful to the actions of far too many people that produce children, having no concept or desire to love and nurture them. The children's journey is one of struggle and redemption. Their love for one another, their bond of strength. Along the way they encounter decent people, strangers that teach them that not every adult they meet is evil or cruel and that the children's previously unknown concepts of fidelity and being loved are not some abstract, unattainable dream only played out in their collective wistful imaginings. This unshakable covenant of love, hope and survival between the children is the heart of the story. The darker moments are but a background. On a parallel path is the character rich true story of a Texas town and its people, amid the largest oil discovery in U S History. How a blessing of riches turned, overnight, into a pernicious calamity, creating a boomtown of thousands of grasping seekers and scoundrels, fostering the destruction of this small hamlet while stealing the innocence of its citizens. Both compelling stories, of the children and the town, dramatically speed towards a shared and redemptive climax.
