Burning Heat

(2016)
(The second book in the Brack Pelton series)
A novel by

 
 
As darkness blankets the holy city of Charleston, South Carolina, Brack Pelton, an Afghanistan War veteran, steps out of a rundown bar after a long night. Before he gets to his truck, he finds himself in the middle of a domestic dispute between a man and a woman on the sidewalk. When a little girl joins the couple and gets hit by the man, Brack intervenes and takes him down. But the abuser isn't finished. He pulls a gun and shoots the woman. Brack saves the little girl, but his world has just been rocked. Again.
The next day, while sitting on a barstool in the Pirate's Cove on the Isle of Palms, his own bar, Brack scans the local paper. The news headline reads: Burned Body of Unidentified Hispanic Man Found at Construction Site. Nothing about a dead woman in the poor section of town. Brack feels a tap on his shoulder and turns around to see an eight-year-old girl standing behind him. She's the little girl he rescued the night before, and she wants him to look into her sister's shooting.
Violence and danger make up Brack's not-too-distant past. Part of him craves it - needs it. And that part has just been fed. Things are about to heat up again in the lowcountry. May God have mercy on the souls who get in the way.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"Burnsworth brings to the lowcountry the same unflinching eye that James Lee Burke turns to the bayou." - Michael Sears
