Tucker, a problem-solving gunfighter still reeling from the bloody death of his childhood sweetheart, must contend with his survivor's guilt while dodging bullets in the increasingly violent Music City.
Weeks after Tucker foils an assassination attempt on a client, he's confronted at his remote country home by men intent on killing him.
Meanwhile, Tucker is forced to relive his secret violent past during an interview with a Nashville billionaire who wants his wife's "accidental" death investigated.
But, before Tucker can take on a new assignment, he must deal with who wants to kill him and why.
Praise for "The Other Side of Bad":
The Other Side of Bad, by R.O. Barton, like its title, is a gotcha; gotcha and won't let you go until you've been through an assassination attempt in Nashville, a face-off in a Louisiana biker bar, the mother of all drug-deals-gone-bad in the wilds of Mexico, and more between the scenes action than a Rambo night out.
Barton casts his characters with disarming frankness-characters large and eccentric-with arcane talents and a taste for brinkmanship.
The Other Side of Bad is visual, visceral, and a trip to the other side.

Here's what readers are saying about, "The Other Side of Bad."
This is a great, fun ride in the spirit of Lee Child and Stephen Hunter but with the more advanced atmospherics of James Lee Burke. C Andrews.
Great new read for Child and Crais fans!! P Godden
R. O. Barton shows promise of being hailed right up there with Lee Child, Michael Connelly, and James Lee Burke. the Other Side of Bad was one good read! S Prater.
