LOATHSOME, DARK & DEEP by HWA Member Aaron Polson

Posted by Dark Whisperer on March 8, 2011

Author: Aaron Polson

Civil War veteran Henry Barlow hasn’t carried a gun since his wife’s brutal murder, a memory he drowns nightly with bourbon. Turning his back on his past, Barlow takes a job with a lumber company on the Pacific Coast. But the lumber has stopped flowing from the Lewis River logging camp in the Washington Territory, and Barlow’s employer, H & P Lumber and Pulp, sends him to investigate with a small band of armed mercenaries. As they travel upriver, Barlow must confront phantoms of his past, the ever-present ghost of his dead wife, alcoholism, and the dark hearts of men perverted by power.

Loathsome, Dark and Deep asks important questions about the nature of what it is to be human and just how far a man is willing to go in his lust for wealth.
