“This novel is well-written, and the author has achieved a balance between mystery that keeps you reading and action that moves the plot forward. The scenes with Chico are raw and violent, and he is truly a remorseless villain (with something terrible in his past as well). Evan is a character who is both sympathetic and exciting—you relate to his pain over his missing wife and desire to find her, but you admire how very capable he is at taking care of himself and facing down some truly scary adversaries; everyone wants to use or kill him, and he has no one to turn to.”

EVAN BUCKLEY THRILLERS #6

A journey without end.
A woman with no shame.
Down that road lies only pain.

Haunted by the unsolved disappearance of his wife Sarah, PI Evan Buckley loses himself in other people’s problems. But when Sarah’s scheming and treacherous friend Carly shows up promising new information, the past and present collide violently for Evan as he goes head-to-head with cold-blooded killers to track down the enigmatic Dixie for her.

He knows he can’t trust her, but he hasn’t got a choice when she confesses what she’s done, leaving Sarah prey to a vicious gang with Old Testament ideas about crime and punishment.

To make things worse Dixie’s brother Jackson, a man with a grievance in his heart and a home-made garrotte in his hands, takes an unhealthy interest in Evan’s exploits as the case goes from frying pan to fire in short order.
