THE ANGELS OF SINKHOLE COUNTY is a humorous story about death and deception set in Appalachia. When Roger Thorndike dies of old age at home in rural West Virginia, his private staff of caregivers are devastated. One of them, Loretta Hardwick, comes up with a plan to salve their broken hearts and save their jobs-in a place where jobs are scarce. They switch out the dead Major, his nickname among the staff, for his living double, a hermit hillbilly who has also been under Loretta's care. The ensuing deception of Major's grown children-Hume, a veterinarian in nearby Powhatan County, and Ruth, an artist in New York City known to the caregivers as Ruthless-as well as nurses, doctors, a pastor, and an angry ex care manager, reveals class divisions, workplace rivalries, and moral dilemmas in a rollicking drama of rising tension and high stakes.
