Justin Chase is the perfect barkeep, tending bar as he lives his life, in a state of Zen serenity, until Birdie Grackle, a foul-mouthed alcoholic, walks into his bar and makes a startling confession.
Six years ago Justin’s life was ripped apart when he discovered his mother’s bludgeoned corpse. Now Justin’s father is serving a life sentence and Justin drowns his emotions in a pool of inner peace. But when Birdie claims he murdered Justin’s mother for cash, Justin is hurled back to the emotions, back to the past, and, most frightening of all, back to the father he tried to leave behind.
Who hired Birdie Grackle to kill Justin's mother?
As Justin pieces together the truth, a killing machine stalks Justin, leaving a trail of dead in his wake. Someone wants to bury the truth, and maybe Justin, too. Justin had better find some answers quick, because murder is just not Zen.

Great reading, all the suspense and thriller added to it. The flow of the story and characters were easy to follow. Justin and his Zen principles kept him from going over the edge to the uglier side of oneself. Finding the truth of his mother's murder kept me reading but his job as a bartender and his followers of flowery characters turn this story to the thriller I enjoy reading. I immersed myself in this wonderful book. One more thing, reading this book will make you absolutely thirsty for the exotic stuff but H2O is my preference. Thank you, Darlene Cruz on Goodreads
