JournalStone Publishing has revealed the cover art for Mockingbird Bay: The Dead Lands, Rick’s last-written novel. The artwork is by Glenn Chadbourne. Here’s the synopsis of the story:
In a place Abby calls the Dead Lands, she aids individuals trapped by unfinished Earthly business and helps them move on.
Abby meets Megan McGowan there, a sixteen-year-old girl who fell to her death on the rocky shores of Mockingbird Bay. Megan can’t remember if it was an accident…or something worse. With the help of Jim Burke, a young man who becomes a close friend, Abbey works to discover how Megan became trapped in this empty place.
But Abby has other troubles — her uncle, the Reverend George Standley, evil and vengeful, pursues her with his Hell Hounds through the twilight realms of the Dead Lands, waiting for her at every turn. Fortunately a mysterious protector helps her evade her uncle’s terrible revenge.
Who is this spirit protector? And will Abby ever gain release from this unchained prison?
