Publisher's Summary

Return to McFalls County and Bull Mountain in Hard Cash Valley, where Brian Panowich weaves another masterful tale of Southern Noir.

Dane Kirby is a broken man and no stranger to tragedy. As a life-long resident and ex-arson investigator for McFalls County, Dane has lived his life in one of the most chaotic and crime-ridden regions of the south. When he gets called in to consult on a brutal murder in a Jacksonville, Florida, motel room, he and his FBI counterpart, Special Agent Roselita Velasquez, begin an investigation that leads them back to the criminal circles of his own backyard.

Arnie Blackwell’s murder in Jacksonville is only the beginning - and Dane and Roselita seem to be one step behind. For someone is hacking a bloody trail throughout the southeast looking for Arnie’s younger brother, a boy with Asperger’s Syndrome who possesses an unusual skill with numbers that could make a lot of money and that has already gotten a lot of people killed - and has even more of the deadliest people alive willing to do anything it takes to exploit him.

As Dane joins in the hunt to find the boy, it swiftly becomes a race against the clock that has Dane entangled in a web of secrets involving everyone from the Filipino mafia to distrusting federal agents to some of hardest southern outlaws he’s ever known.

"The plotting is skilled, as is the sleuthing, and the landscape is stunning. But it’s the hard-jawed characters, with their tough talk and scarred souls, who really get under your skin." (New York Times Book Review)

I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!

I am so in love with this series!! I may just listen to them all over again soon!
I must admit, I missed Clayton Burroughs but I really love Dane Kirby. I'm interested to see where else this series goes. There will be more, won't there !!??
God I hated Roselita Velasquez, I was hoping the entire time that someone would slap the crap out of her! Please, if there is another book, don't let her be in it!!

Narration:
Is there anyone else who could be more perfect for these books than Brian Troxell? The answer to that is a big fat NO! He IS this series!
He is EXCELLENT!!!

Truly Great, Again

My title is appros as Brian Panowich has written another great book. Love, warmth, lost, regret, true friendship, spirit and heart. These sentiments are on full display in this story. I strongly recommend this book and know all readers will be deeply touched as I was.

Great!

Panowich always delivers! This was a great addition to the already amazing few books by Panowich. I really enjoy the "Modern Western" feel of the story and the simplicity of depth(if that makes sense) for each character. The narration made the story very enjoyable as well. I would highly recommend this book to anyone!!

What am a missing- Besides a plausible story

Does anyone really see apparitions that are in their right mind? I can deal with the hokey storyline - But it’s a little over the top. Not finishing.

A geat voice brings a great story to life

I haven't even finished this yet, but I have to say that Brian Troxell *nailed* this. He makes these characters come to full life! I got introduced to Rooster on my run today, and I'm just floored by how I could picture him as if he was right here.

Excellent!

I have grown to love Brian Panowich’s books. His characters have such depth and the settings are raw and gritty. The dialogue sounds like real people talking and the action is always intense. I wasn’t crazy about the main character’s girlfriend in this book but that is easy to overlook when everything is done well. A fantastic, fast-paced book.
