Seventeen-year old Ronald Wilby is an introverted young man with a protective single mother.

Walking home one evening, Ronald stumbles into young Carol Mathews; in the encounter, Carol ends up assaulted and dead. Ronald leaves his jacket at the scene.

Elaine Wilby is convinced that Carol’s death was an accident, and converts a small part of the old house to a secret room where Ronald must hide—until she saves enough that they can move, and start over. She tells everyone that her son ran away.

The plan works until Mrs. Wilby is taken by sudden illness. The house is sold to another family—a family with three pretty daughters...

Lurking behind the walls, Ronald is tempted more than he can bear.

Bad Ronald is Volume 19 of the Spatterlight Press Signature Series. Released in the centenary of the author's birth, this handsome new collection is based upon the prestigious Vance Integral Edition. Select volumes enjoy up-to-date maps, and many are graced with freshly-written forewords contributed by a distinguished group of authors. Each book bears a facsimile of the author's signature and a previously-unpublished photograph, chosen from family archives for the period the book was written. These unique features will be appreciated by all, from seasoned Vance collector to new reader sampling the spectrum of this author's influential work for the first time. – John Vance II
