A new work from the 2012 Derringer-nominated author of Ballistic.
When you need to hunt down a god, call a sniper.
The D.E.A. believes Marine Corps Sergeant Matt O’Connor is their best bet to capture the deadliest meth kingpin in the United States—Herman Estevez, the self-proclaimed “God of Speed.”
Special Agent Sam Brookings drops O’Connor into thick Ozark mountain country with a simple directive: stake out backwoods drug labs and pinpoint Estevez, a man who has eluded the D.E.A. for years. When O’Connor finally verifies the kingpin’s location, Brookings leads an assault team to bring in the D.E.A.’s most-wanted, using the Marine sniper as an observer only.
O’Connor, though, isn’t built to merely observe.
Brookings soon finds himself in the worst position imaginable: trapped between a heavily armed outlaw and a warrior with a rifle who lives to dispense swift justice—the kind that comes at 3,200 feet per second.
Trey Dowell uses writing as a desperate measure to release all of the pressure generated by the ideas bouncing around inside his skull—and also as a semi-legitimate reason to put off mowing the lawn. Hard at work on his first novel, he’s been a Finalist (top five) in Writer’s Digest’s Popular Fiction Awards, as well as an Honorable Mention recipient in the Writer’s Digest Annual Writing Competition. He also took 1st place in Writersweekly.com’s 24-hour fiction contest. He resides in Saint Louis, Missouri, where he’s a member of Writers Under The Arch, along with several other Untreed Reads authors.
