A Novella by

Women And Children First

In the fourth shattering installment of Ray Garton's six-part Frankenstorm, an outbreak of madness, mayhem, and murder has every man, woman and child running for shelter. But home is where the horror is. . .


Andy is more than a little worried when his ex-wife - a former drug addict who has custody of their son - is seen hanging around with her old crowd. But when he learns that her dealer has moved in with them, Andy has no choice but to take action. He finds an unlikely ally in Police Deputy Ram von Pohle - a local bully who tormented Andy in school. Ram swears he wants to make up for those years of abuse. He convinces Andy that the raging storm is the perfect opportunity to break in to his ex-wife's home and save Andy's boy. But when the weather reaches a fever pitch, their simple plan backfires. The night quickly escalates into a bloodbath. Ram explodes with rage, bodies are torn apart by bullets, and Andy and his son find themselves trapped inside a nightmare. . .with a deranged sadist.

When the storm hits this close to home, no one is safe. And no one gets out alive. . .
