Steven L. Shrewsbury



When a series of bizarre murders take place in reconstruction era Memphis, former Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest is summoned to help solve matters. The occupying Union forces Commandant, General Michaels, sees members of his family killed in a fashion unique to a killer in Forrestís cavalry brand, one William Hells. Nathan assures him Billy died in the war. However, when the Commandantís brother is murdered, Billy is captured before Forrestís own eyes. Confused over the implications that a man he buried still lives, Forrest finds some consolation in Hells executionÖuntil Billy again strikes Michael's kin at a whorehouse the next day. Again, Billy is shot dead and Michaels thinks his family safe.

But he's wrong. Billy returns again.

For some, the war isnít over and Hell walks on two legs.

A story of revenge, courage and redemption, HELL BILLY treads on the borderlands of the human soul and what lies across the brink.
