Twelve Gauge (Paperback)


For the first time in 31 years, Twelve Gauge returns in a new paperback edition! Formerly released as "Father's Little Helper" by Zebra Books in 1992, this Crossroad Press edition features new cover artwork and design by Chad Lutzke, as well as a bonus prequel novella, "Killing Time".


The citizens of Cedar Bluff, Tennessee, have never recovered from the Christmas Massacre of 1978 ... that tragic day when Richard McFarland, armed with a shotgun, abandoned his wife and son and selected a local church as the stage for a bloody, murderous rampage. McFarland paid for his crimes in the electric chair. Yet not even death will stop him from finishing what he started ...


After fourteen years, Sonny's father is back. He'd been away so long that Sonny hardly remembered him. But Richard McFarland remembered his only son. And now he will teach him how to kill. Sonny is about to become a deadly force that will be unleashed on the unsuspecting citizens of Cedar Bluff. For when the time is right, he will return to the small, quiet town, bringing death and destruction on an even more terrifying Christmas Day!
