Milestone is not only the name of the run-down kudzu-covered town that haunts those who live outside its borders, it is a central character in Kealan Patrick Burke's "Thirty Miles South of Dry County," a novella linked to his previously published "Currency of Souls." (The latter of which need not be read to enjoy this haunting little tale.)

While the town is the main player in this heartfelt read, the beauty of the story lies in its narrative, the first-person account of Warwick Tanner, an old man passing each day of his life sitting outside a liquor store talking to his buddy Dick. But when Dick and Sven, the store's owner, disappear in Milestone on their way to confront a seemingly twisted self-appointed mayor, Warwick finds himself with no other choice but to venture in after them.

But is Warwick going of his own accord or because the town is calling out to him for some sinister purpose? Either way, Warwick will encounter a frightening cast of characters on his way to finding the truth, but don't expect too much. As the sign into Milestone proclaims: THERE ARE NO MIRACLES IN MILESTONE.
