He has a bloody, dismembered foot in a cooler, along with a pile of cucumbers, but that might not even be Darcy's biggest problem.
Darcy's biggest problem may well be the trail of bodies behind him.
Or the lady hit man in front of him.
Or the old man, on the run from a murder he committed 50 years ago, at his side.
Or it could well be what it's been Darcy's entire life...his father, and the man who took his father's place.
After fleeing the blood-bath at a church for the self-penitent, Darcy heads deep into his past to discover what his father was searching for just before Darcy killed him. The journey takes him to banks all over West Texas, looking for a safety deposit box which may hold the secrets.
But regardless of what those secrets might be and how they may soothe his soul, Darcy is still being hunted. By who? The hit man, the cops, the Feds, his step-father....
It doesn't matter where he runs, the bodies pile up, the cash is missing, and he can't remember what the hell happened that bloody night at the tattoo parlor.

Exit Blood is quintessential, bite-your-lip Trey R. Barker with just enough nitrous thrown into the literary stream to make most thrillers seem like Keystone Cops. There's enough guns, gore, and grit to make you hang on for the whole ride, just make sure you keep your arms and legs inside the novel at all times.
