Head of Zeus
Cold in July
Cold in July Joe R. Lansdale

Night. You wake suddenly.

Someone's in your house. Is your family safe? You stumble from bed. You must investigate.

If you had a gun, would you take it? If your life was threatened, would you use it?

Richard Dane, face-to-face with an armed intruder, does. With one shot he takes a man's life and changes his own forever.

The police say it is a clear-cut case of self-defence – the deceased is a no-account ex-con wanted by the law. No one blames Richard... except the dead man's father who, hell-bent on revenge, sets his sights on Richard's own four-year-old son.

As father is pitted against father, both men are inexorably drawn into dangerous territory as small-town secrets peal away to reveal a vile conspiracy that will threaten to devour them both.
