It's the Great Depression. Drought has forced thousands to pack their belongings and head West for employment. Marcus Connelly is also heading West; however, he is not searching for work, he is searching for vengeance. A mysterious man/creature known as Mr. Shivers killed his daughter, Molly. As he travels West, Connelly meets others who have had friends and relatives murdered by Mr. Shivers. Soon, Connelly is leading an entire posse in search of this mysterious killer. During their travels across dry, rugged terrain, they must battle evil forces that have sworn to protect Mr. Shivers.

From official release/information:

Product Description: It is the time of the Great Depression.

Thousands have left their homes looking for a better life, a new life. But Marcus Connelly is not one of them. He searches for one thing, and one thing only. Revenge.

Because out there, riding the rails, stalking the camps, is the scarred vagrant who murdered Connelly's daughter. No one knows him, but everyone knows his name: Mr. Shivers.

In this extraordinary debut, Robert Jackson Bennett tells the story of an America haunted by murder and desperation. A world in which one man must face a dark truth and answer the question-how much is he willing to sacrifice for his satisfaction?
