TRAPPED IN CUSTOM-MADE GRAVES
There was Stroilov, who preferred suicide to suffocation—or to death by the killer who lurked in the silent blackness.
There was Taylor, who gave apologies to no man and who now refused God, vowing even to murder before his last breath.

Milton Berle and John Roeburt provide an unforgettable and soul-searching answer in this moving story of a small group of people brought together in a tiny Mexican village at precisely the time an earthquake strikes—and rips their world apart.
