Baker & Taylor A novel of suspense follows Huger Dillard, a fifteen-year old deer hunter, whose beloved blind uncle is accused of murder
Blackwell North Amer Huger Dillard is no ordinary fifteen-year-old from the Lowcountry of South Carolina. He may not have a father to help him grow up, but day-to-day guiding of his blind Uncle Leland - Unc, for short - and weekends spent at the Hunt Club have made him an expert on the habits of deer, the pompous attorneys and doctors of nearby Charleston, and the ways of the world. But with Unc's discovery of a mutilated body, Huger suddenly learns that he is expert at nothing - least of all his own life. Everything he knows and every-one he loves - Unc, his mother, his foundering teenage romance - is at risk, and Huger must use every ounce of resourcefulness and bravery to stay alive and protect what he believes in. Yet, when he finally discovers precisely what happened that Saturday morning, there is still one more secret to uncover, this one too dark, too deep, for him to even imagine.
