Southern Gothic Novel graphic SOUTHERN GOTHIC NOVEL:
The Aberdeen, Mississippi Sex-Slave Incident

by Frank Blocker

There are 5,218 people living in Aberdeen, Mississippi. This is the story of 17 of them. And. The men that caused all of the trouble. Someone is kidnapping Aberdeen's young women. The town was getting nervous. They were locking the stately front entries of their antebellum homes and the aluminum screen doors of their double-wide trailers. They would have called in the FBI but they didn't have to, as that particular organization was proud to boast a national office on Aberdeen's Main Street that runs along the scenic banks of the Tombigbee River. This was a town in an uproar and dirty deeds are being done dirt cheap.
