When Casey Maldonado and Death hitch a desperate ride away from one disaster, they throw themselves right into the middle of another. The semi in which they are traveling crashes. Before the Grim Reaper takes Evan the Trucker away, Evan whispers to Casey about a stash hidden in the truck that she should keep away from them. Them turns out to be a band of men who want that package no matter what it takes, and they believe Casey knows where, and what, it is. Alone and injured, with neither money nor identification, Casey escapes from the ER doctors and her pursuers and hides out in the cornfields of Kansas. The valuable stash soon points Casey toward something big and complicated. Uncertain how to proceed, Casey is led by Death to a group of teenagers looking for something other than dust and crops to fill their days and nights. Using their limited resources, she finds her way through a maze of greed and desperation into the clutches of people who don’t care who gets hurt as long as they get what they want.Original Publisher: US, Poisoned Pen PressLanguage(s): EnglishISBN: 9781615950263
