A Fatal Family Secret

Billy Purgatory: I Am the Devil Bird

Title: Billy Purgatory: I Am the Devil Bird
Author: Jesse James Freeman
Publisher: self
ISBN: n/a
Why Read?: Early Review

Thoughts: Rather disjointed story that looses the Devil Bird of the title rather early on without ever explaining its significance.  Would have been much better broken into multiple novels with a more cohesive storyline in each.
