Overview

When Nathan Parker was discarded from his job in Cincinnati in the economic collapse of 2008, he took his shattered confidence west for a new start. Near the small town of Willow Run, Montana, he finds a man’s body. Then it vanishes.

Dismissed as a lunatic drifter by a hulking inept Deputy and an aging Sheriff, Nathan Parker vows to prove there was a body and to discover why he died. He finds support in a local woman, a fiery-tempered red head, who has a passion for books. And a passion for trouble. She helps him in his quest and becomes his romantic interest.

As Parker digs deeper into this sleepy little town’s history, he unearths a web of deception and greed that is anything but wholesome. Then like the dead man’s body, local citizens begin to vanish. But no one seems to notice.

Parker doesn’t know who can be trusted. When the last pieces of the mystery fall into place, he also vanishes, accused as a cop killer on the run. Now he must use his wits to escape. Taking the law into his own hands, he must save himself and his fellow prisoners, reveal the conspiracy, and win back the affection of the red-haired woman.

I absolutely loved it. I couldn't wait to get home to read it. We ate frozen dinners for 4 nights until I finished it. The book kept changing so much that it stayed very interesting to see who. what, where was going to be bad, good or indifferent next.

This is one the better books floating around. More twists than I ever thought. Just when I thought that "A" was the bad guy, "B" became the bad guy. Then back and forth again. This is a page turner. The hero turns out to be a hero of the old fashioned sort-reminds me of the "aw shucks ma'm" genre, and then he gets caught up in the bad guy web. Who is the bad guy? Read the book to the end to find out. You also find out why the good guy is really a good guy. Great book.

Good murder mystery with some conspiracy theory mixed in. There is action and a bit of light romance (very light - no sex scenes) and some crazy twists in the plot for good measure. There are two more books in the series which I bought and I hope they are as good. There is a very small amount of grammar issues (wrong word used or word missing) but not enough that you didn't know what was happening or what was meant in the story.

Readers of both sexes will enjoy this action packed mystery. It is 830 pages long. The editing is okay. There are some omitted words and some words are used wrongly. I enjoyed this rather violent and gory mystery very much. There is some cursing, no sex, but there is a dab of romance. I bought yhe next two books available for my ereader as soon as I finished this book. Ladies who like chick lit, this book is not for you. It reads like the script for the Die Hard movies. For readers 17 and up, due to content. AD

This is a longer book with just over 800 pages and I didn't get hooked til about 200 pages in but then I was hooked, took me on a great ride, lots of twists and turns and when I thought I knew what was happening it surprised me. Ate this book up.

This is a very intetesting, well-written and action-packed story. It is suspenseful w/ few swear words; has romance but no sex. I loved it!

A very good read. Kept you guessing, and had plenty of action. Unlike many of the independent offerings out there, it had very few grammatical errors. Surprised this was a freebie given how well it is written.
