My Brother's Destroyer

(The first book in the Baer Creighton series)
A novel by


International bestseller and genre-bender
My Brother’s Destroyer is a starkly comedic grit lit thriller told in a Smoky Mountain dialect Kirkus says “perfectly evokes the woods and hollows of the Carolina hills.”

A story of loyalty, love, justice and redemption you will never forget.

Baer Creighton is a gifted distiller of fruited moonshine, capable of detecting even the subtlest lies. He lives in the woods next to his house, philosophizes with his dog Fred, and writes letters to his high school love Ruth--who long ago chose Baer's brother.

Baer keeps a low profile. Everyone is happy drinking his sublime moonshines -- until Fred goes missing. A week later, while Baer harvests apples in the moonlight, a chain of headlights emerges from the woods. A single truck tosses a bundle to the ditch.

When you discover who stole Fred, you'll know you've found a new master of the dark surreal.

And when you see what Baer does to him...


And what they do to Baer...

You haven't read a novel like this.

I promise.

You’ll be engrossed long after you turn the last page.

★★★★�� Seattle Book Review
“In short, I was left completely in awe.”

NO CLIFFHANGER. My Brother's Destroyer was written as a standalone, but Baer fans clamored for a series.
