  A PLACE TO DIE is the story of Sam Gholson when he discovers what it means to be haunted by a killer who has taken the life of his only brother. The labyrinthine trail will lead him through the hills of Kentucky in 1938 as he takes on the role of amateur investigator. The story envelopes all that is rare about the region and its people - tradition, loyalty and kindness as well as clannishness. Yet it stands alone in two important ways. First, it shows an underlying passion and support between two brothers, and it reveals a rare but dignified portrait of a sixteen-year-old boy struggling with the reality that his own life is in danger. Even more importantly, however, A PLACE TO DIE describes the heart-wrenching effects of a boy alone, as he deals with moonshiners, bootleggers and a Machiavellian acting sheriff, and has only his vigilance, courage, and knowledge of the hills to depend on as he runs for his life⎯from the law with a warrant for his arrest and from a stone cold killer who is closing in on him.
