The Burner

Racism, Revenge, and the Wrath of God

  Welcome to Sunny Palms Nursing Home, where southern hospitality breeds racism, rage and hot revenge.  Revenge so fierce that even the Good Lord's mighty powers can’t stop hell's blazing embers from moving into the building and taking up residency.  Right there among the geriatric patients who are strapped to metal chairs and hidden behind the locked doors of C Ward.

 

  Was it the black orderly who torched those twelve people to death? Or was it the bigoted nurse's dictatorship? Was it both the orderly and the nurse? But what about the evangelical elderly patient whose mind tripped over the edge of reality in the throes of raving lunacy?

 

  One patient and a child know who started the fire.  But are they even still alive?

 

* * *

Carlyle Neuse takes a night-shift job at Sunny Palms Nursing Home while he attends college to become an RN.  He befriends patients in the locked psych ward.  Soon the entire nursing home burns to the ground, and a dozen people are dead.  Carlyle is thrown into prison for arson and murder, where he's tortured by inmates, guards, and the jail psychiatrist. 

Somewhere three patients and a 12-year old girl know the truth.  Can Carlyle find any of them before it's too late?  

 

Or are they all dead, too?
