(2018)
A novel by

 
 
Years ago, the Jakes brothers were found alone, hungry, and freezing, in a trailer where they'd been left by their mother. One found a happy home. The older son never did, but he always dreamed of the day when they would be together again.

Thirteen years later, big brother appears, and he's determined to reunite the family, even if he has to do it by kidnapping his younger brother. The mother they haven't seen in years is in New Orleans, and she's in trouble. Her sons are coming to the rescue, even if one of them is doing it at gunpoint.

But things are rapidly spinning out of control in New Orleans. The Jakes boys, the disgraced former sheriff trying to chase them down, and an ambitious Louisiana deputy investigating the mother are in for far more danger than any of them bargained for. As they're caught between two sides in a vicious drug war, everyone's fighting to survive, no one knows who to trust, and it's anyone's guess who'll be left standing at the end.

A story of loss and redemption, of love and betrayal, and above all of how far some will go to be part of a family, FORTUNATE SON will keep you up all night and leave you unable to forget it.
