Summary

After years of war, Army Ranger Quinn Colson returns home to the rugged, rough hill country of Northeast Mississippi to find his native Tibbehah County overrun with corruption, decay, meth runners, and violence. His uncle, the longtime county sheriff, is dead. A suicide, he’s told, but others - like tomboy Deputy Lillie Virgil - whisper murder. 

In the days that follow, it’s up to Colson to discover the truth, not only about his uncle, but about his family, his friends, his town, and himself. And once it’s discovered, there’s no going back for this real hero of the Deep South.

Right up my creek!

If you like James Lee Burke, you will love this book as well. Well portrayed and deep characters, in a realistic setting. Great first book in the series. I look forward to the next.

Predictable but a good start to a series?

McLeod Andrew’s does an amazing job with this story. The story could use a bit more depth but the characters are well drawn leaving the reader wanting more.
