Overview

A TALE OF FORBIDDEN LOVE and VENGEFUL MURDER. What could make a man return to a hometown where he had suffered so much boyhood disappointment and unfair treatment? When Highway Patrol sergeant Dave Glosson sees one gruesome fatal accident too many, he decides to return to that boyhood home to face down the ghosts of his past and start over. The last thing he expects is to find there, while rebuilding a life of calm, bachelor contentment is the love of his life. Erin Winstead a young woman of incredible beauty, roams the town like a wild and canny animal, fleecing tourists, begging food, and eliciting reactions from the townspeople ranging from pity, amusement, tolerance, and sometimes disgust. She is the town’s joke; an oddity they simply ignore, mostly looking the other way. But is Erin at worst insane or at best severely retarded. In time, Dave discovers she is neither. Can she be rehabilitated and lead a normal life? Will Dave’s love for Erin lead to romance, marriage, and consummate happiness, or facing execution on death row— or both?

    Highly Recommended

    I have so enjoyed all books this man has written. He makes you feel what is happening and keeps you interested from the first paragraph. I will be watching for anything he writes in the future. He brings the characters to life. You see them and watch their lives progress in every word.

    Highly recommend

    I just finished reading "Fifty Years to Midnight" by Tom Lewis and had tears in my eyes at the end. In my opinion, it is the most powerful book he has written to date. The story is so believable and so well-craafted, I just marvel at his writing ability. His characterizations are so accurate, I'd recognize those people anywhere. The dialogue of the characters is like real conversations--not contrived and his excellent research shines through. Mr. Lewis has told a great story with economy of words without sacrificing any of the ambience and nuance that give the raw story "flesh and blood". I'm sure when I read it again (and I WILL), I will glean even more of the subtleties. Some writers put lots of words o a page and have lots of pages that don't tell half as good a story as he has done. It is simply a wonderful book. I've read many books by many different authors and all types of genres and I rank Tom Lewis's books with some of the very best.
