The Guardian Angel of Death
(As the Bird Flies, Vignettes in the Life of Porter Gibson 'Digit', Part III)

Halloween 1932: At the height of the Great Depression, with Prohibition winding down, Porter Gibson 'Digit' - the famed author, athlete, and innovator of the finger - returns to the Lost Kingdom of Moose Harbor, Maine, to help his childhood friend, 'Jeffah' Grant, make a final run - smuggle one last boat load of liquor into the country. Unbeknownst to Jeffah, Porter's been asked to investigate the deaths of three local smugglers. Unbeknownst to Porter, they worked for Jeffah.

Enchanted by a gypsy woman, Porter finds himself stalked by the Angel of Death, ruthless gangsters, and a mysterious stranger - all the while haunted by a specter and demons from his past. It's a fight for his life, and sanity, in this engrossing, haunting tale of survival and redemption on the Eastern Frontier.
