A MAN ATTEMPTING AN ESCAPE FROM A VIOLENT PAST
A decade of illegal underground fights drives Finneus Gentry to quit the outlawed circuit after a last battle in a deserted Texas warehouse and seeks to lose himself in the mountains of Montana. Scarred inside as well as out, he hopes to work honest hands rather than outlaw fists. Employed to operate "Buzz" Buzzard's logging equipment, Finn slowly builds new skills and lasting ties with the owner old enough to be his grandfather.
Finn's best intentions are tested when men bent on human trafficking try to beat a woman into submission. The bullies reawaken combat arts to spoil plans to abduct Rian Tunny. Learning Rian has nothing and nowhere to go, Buzz and his wife Elizabeth take the young woman in and help her find work. Rian and Finneus become closer after he's confronted by a competitor he once faced on the Texas fight circuit.

They are characters that you won't soon forget."-Lynda Nanney, Retired Librarian
