On the anniversary of his wife’s passing, Jefferson Shaw—ex-cop, retired Marine, and grieving widower—packed a duffle bag and climbed into his pickup truck to take the road trip they had been planning together before she died.
Now, when engine trouble temporarily strands him in Rosewater, Texas, an impulsive act of chivalry toward a battered young woman lands Shaw in more hot water than he ever could have anticipated.
Before he knows it, he’s caught up in a decades old family drama, a senseless murder, and the search for a missing grandson that soon has him staring down the barrel of a malignant narcissist’s gun.
“Browne’s thrillers are lean, mean and thoroughly entertaining.”
