“Read the book as soon as you can get your hands on a copy.”
When faced with an armed intruder, Richard Dane shoots the man dead. The police say it is a clear-cut case of self-defence. No one blames Richard…except the dead man's father who, hell-bent on revenge, sets his sights on Richard’s own four-year-old son.
Night. You wake suddenly.
Someone’s in your house. Is your family safe? You stumble from bed. You must investigate.
If you had a gun, would you take it? If your life was threatened, would you use it?
Richard Dane, face-to-face with an armed intruder, does. With one shot he takes a man’s life and changes his own forever.
The police say it is a clear-cut case of self-defence—the deceased is a no-account ex-con wanted by the law. No one blames Richard...except the dead man’s father who, hell-bent on revenge, sets his sights on Richard’s own four-year-old son.
As father is pitted against father, both men are inexorably drawn into dangerous territory as small-town secrets peel away to reveal a vile conspiracy that will threaten to devour them both.
The first title in a series of classic Joe R. Lansdale novels.
