Dallastown, PA Author Publishes Novel

By: PR Leap
( Snatch Block, a new book by Tracy L. Bissell, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Eighty-four-year-old Keener Wilson has been a farmer in Dwight, Iowa all his life. The community of Dwight is small, rural, and close-knit, and most of its residents are descendants of those who lived in Dwight before them. Justin and Jason are brothers with an unstable background who are constantly on the move. When they stumble upon Dwight and land jobs on Keener's farm, they seem to blend into the community well, but chaos and violence seem to follow the two brothers wherever they go, and this time is no exception.

As they become acquainted with the townsfolk, Justin, with the reluctant help of Jason, decides to take the law into his own hands and enact punishment on those he deems deserving-a drunk, an abusive husband, and a local sex offender are among the chosen. But as Justin becomes more rash and violent, Jason begins to realize that his victims may not always be as bad as they seem.
