Jack Keller is back in the desert, trying to make a new life for himself and trying to heal from the wounds, both physical and emotional, he suffered from the events of Devils and Dust.
But trouble has a way of finding Jack. When he rescues a stranger from being beaten and robbed in a parking lot, the man claims to be carrying a message from the father who abandoned him years ago a man who claims to have the secret behind the trauma Keller suffered in the first Gulf War.
Jack’s dying father, however, has his own secret agenda, and the beautiful and ruthless heiress to a powerful political dynasty is willing to go to bloody extremes to keep the past buried. When she turns to an amoral ex-government agent to silence him “by any means necessary”, Jack Keller, former hunter of men, finds himself being hunted once again. But this time, he’s all alone, with nothing and no one to hold back the dark tide of rage he’s been fighting for years.
When Jack Keller’s demons are finally unleashed, there’s going to be Hell to pay and no one will be safe.

J.D. and the man himself, Jack Keller is back. He's back and he's pissed. Really pissed. Seems Jack is slowly getting his life back on track, and back to a normalcy. He's back with a woman that loves and cares for him, and Jack is starting to have feelings for her. When a man bringing message for Jack, is attacked in the parking lot of the saloon Jack works at, that's the first sign that trouble is on the horizon. Little do the folks know, who are trying to stop this message from getting to Jack, is you never irritate a hornet's nest. When the woman he's falling in love with, is killed in the most violent way imaginable, Jack will not rest until he finds the ones responsible. Jack is a hunter and finder of men, and once he has the scent and is on the trail, people at the end of the trail will have Hell to pay. Great book and I highly recommend this to others. This book goes from Zero to 60 from the first page.
