About the Book

Thaddeus (Taad) Aaron Lindenhall is the sixth generation of the Lindenhall lineage living in an agricultural community, Atkinsville, in southeastern Kansas. The family owns two sections of land, one of which Taad leased to others and the other being the Old World Forest. Taad is the largest retail merchant in town, and the family name enjoys a high level of notoriety and prominence in the community. Residents and farmers in and around Atkinsville understand that the Lindenhalls have no intention to level the Wood, as it’s called by Taad, and allow local grain farmers to exploit it for farming. Westerly tips off Taad. That one local rancher-farmer, Clayton Jurkins, is determined to harvest the forest and farm it, but worse still, he aims to drive the Lindenhall clan from the area and gain control of Lindenhall’s lands. Taad plans a defense to protect his family from Jurkins’s efforts to disrupt the peace, then (with the help of Elenore, an Overseer) discovers that someone has buried bodies in his Wood, and the hunt is on to find a psychopath in their midst.

About the Author

Michael E. Newell a transplanted thirty-year resident in “Green Country,” Tulsa, Oklahoma grew up in rural Michigan, not far from Detroit, and developed a passion for the outdoors at an early age. He finds common ground between the hardwood forests he grew up with and the lands in northeast Oklahoma. Newell is a Science and History channel addict and an avid reader of fiction, particularly those with a slant on actual historical events such as the works of Dan Brown and Steve Berry. Newell learned wilderness life by exploring the hundreds of acres of open lands, which were, in effect, his back yard. Newell, following his father’s lead, developed a keen passion for hunting, and for outdoor activities of all kinds, and trail blazing new ground. Newell with his wife, Linda, live an “empty-nester” lifestyle with their dogs, Lucy and Bravo.
