Having now finished the big beautiful The Redbreast by Jo Nesbo, it's on to this book.

"Rumor[sic], hearsay, folklore.  Whichever way it laid down to rest it came up for air, rumor[sic] had it that a white feather indicated the visitation of an angel."

Year of Publication

Two men face one another in a darkened room, the culmination of a journey that has encompassed not only their own lives, but the lives of countless innocent victims.

Back in Georgia in 1939, twelve-year-old Joseph Vaughan hears of the brutal assault and murder of a young girl, the first of a series of killings that will take ten lives in the subsequent decade.  Compelled by fear and duty, Joseph and his friends establish The Guardians, a group of children determined to protect the people of Augusta Falls against the evil in their midst.  But evil evades them, and they watch helplessly as one child after another is taken from their ranks.
