The state police of Troop D in rural Pennsylvania have
kept a secret in Shed B out back of the barracks ever
since 1979, when Troopers Ennis Rafferty and Curtis Wilcox
answered a call from a gas station just down the road and
came back with an abandoned Buick Roadmaster. Curt Wilcox
knew old cars, and he knew immediately that this one
was...wrong, just wrong. A few hours later, when Rafferty
vanished, Wilcox and his fellow troopers knew the car was
worse than dangerous -- and that it would be better if
John Q. Public never found out about it.
Curt's avid curiosity taking the lead, they investigated
as best they could, as much as they dared. Over the years
the troop absorbed the mystery as part of the background
to their work, the Buick 8 sitting out there like a still
life painting that breathes -- inhaling a little bit of

In the fall of 2001, a few months after Curt Wilcox is
killed in a gruesome auto accident, his 18-year-old boy
Ned starts coming by the barracks, mowing the lawn,
washing windows, shoveling snow. Sandy Dearborn, Sergeant
Commanding, knows it's the boy's way of holding onto his
father, and Ned is allowed to become part of the Troop D
family. One day he looks in the window of Shed B and
discovers the family secret. Like his father, Ned wants
answers, and the secret begins to stir, not only in the
minds and hearts of the veteran troopers who surround him,
but in Shed B as well....
From a Buick 8 is a novel about our fascination with
deadly things, about our insistence on answers when there
are none, about terror and courage in the face of the
