Publisher's Summary

Set in 1968, Nick Drake is a troubled Vietnam War veteran seeking redemption as a game warden in a quiet land. But when a fighter pilot from a nearby air force base mysteriously plummets onto one of his refuges, he is plunged into a deadly showdown with the military. A vexing mystery involving multiple murders ensues, and Nick must turn to the old ways of his Paiute neighbors, to hunt for a vicious killer and bring justice to the pitiless high desert.

Listen as a stand-alone or as part of the Nick Drake series.

Award-winning author Dwight Holing draws on his deeply rooted connection to the American West and understanding of the natural world to create a masterful story. With memorable characters and prose that crackles like the unforgiving setting, the suspense builds and drives The Pity Heart to a climax, as powerful as a force of nature.

Excellent Contemporary Western ....

The Pity Heart is the second book in the Nick Drake series. This can be listened to as as a stand alone but I would suggest listening to the entire series.
This book is set in 1968. Nick Drake is a Vietnam vet with a closet full of ghosts that will not be quite.
While working as an Oregon State game warden he sees a fighter pilot ejected from his plane. Something about the way the Air Force is handling the investigation feels wrong to Nick. When he goes to the base he first meets up with a man who’s life he once saved. He’s engaged to the RN who saved Nick’s life, but something really feels off now.
Charles Legget does an excellent job narrating.
This series is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
