Abstract:

"Forced to witness his family's brutal murder, a man is left with an obsession to walk as the sole means to suppress recurring visions that will consume his sanity. On a two-lane Pennsylvania highway, Miller puts one foot in front of the other until his clothes go ragged and his shoes fall away. He is joined by a peculiar drifter whose mission becomes apparent in passing miles. Everything and everyone the man touches dies, making him either executioner or savior. Now, the stranger's disintegrating health requires a replacement reaper, and Miller is left with a grim decision. The dangling carrot for the man who has lost everything is a reunion with his dead child. Welcome to Candy Land"--Page [4] cover.
