Overview
  • The townsfolk of Eden, Wyoming wake up to the first official murder the town has seen in 25 years. Their reaction to this isn't normal and there's a reason for that. Eden operates as a haven for fugitive criminals who remain here while new identities, often including facial reconstruction, are created for them. There is zero tolerance for any illegal activity that might draw attention to the town and an "official murder" is the last thing they want. A single, tight-knit family runs Eden with the youngest oddball son Mark Shiffron overseeing the postal branch, the only means of shipping in or out of the city. THE FBI has repeatedly been foiled trying to insert an undercover here; they see Mark as the weak link to exploit. This murder gives them a new opportunity.

Dark ingenuity drives this suspense comic. Eden, Wyo., is a perfectly peaceful small town because it's a safe haven for criminals. Mayor Dana Shiffron and her accomplices have kept the lid on obvious lawbreaking for years since they tried to kill her husband, Eden's founder, after he went insane. Now he's back, hiding somewhere in the shadows as he plots revenge and tries to manipulate their son, Mark, the postal worker who's the story's protagonist. Mark has Asperger's syndrome and poor social skills; some townspeople think he's mentally challenged and that they can safely ignore him. They're wrong. Mark is quite intelligent and uncannily observant, and a frighteningly competent player when he chooses to intervene in the community's life. Goodhart's art is suitably gloomy, as Hawkins and Hill's script believably unleashes violence and sets the stage for much more. (July)
