The stillness of the warm, Kentucky afternoon on Copperhead Cove is shattered by the echo of a high-powered rifle, sending birds flying and two famous basketball coaches to a watery grave. Bo Paxton, their fishing guide, becomes collateral damage, thrashing through the murky waters of Quail Hollow Lake for his life while a Chicago hit man hunts him down, beginning a life-and-death manhunt for Bo and a marked member of the Chicago mob.
Ethan Paxton and Jake Delgado, from far-off California, search the unfamiliar Kentucky hill country for Bo, but they aren't the only ones looking for him. In a race against time and the Chicago mob, Ethan and Jake must battle an unforgiving lake, a thunderstorm and poisonous snakes to decide Bo's fate. Can they reach him before the mob enforcers?
Praise for Copperhead Cove
"Ron Parham has done it again. His second Ethan Paxton suspense novel, Copperhead Cove, is just as exciting and entertaining as his first foray in the genre: Molly's Moon - maybe even more so. This time his hero is back east, in the wilds of Kentucky, trying to save his older brother Bo and family from a nasty situation in which they have gotten on the wrong side of a vengeful and death-dealing wing of the Chicago mob. Once more delivering his story from multiple points of view, Parham scores big with another fast-reading page-turner." ~ J. B. Hogan, author of The Apostate, Angels in the Ozarks, and Living Behind Time
