Dead Romeos

(The seventh book in the John Lee Quarrels series)
A novel by

Somebody is killing old men in Somerton County. Stalking and killing them in the most horrific way. The first to fall was Wilbur Forbes, murdered in his own garage in the middle of the afternoon. As Deputy John Lee Quarrels and the rest of the Somerton County Sheriff's Department investigate the gruesome crime, the people around town are talking about a maniac passing through, putting everybody's lives in danger. When another man falls victim to the same fate, panic sets in. People are pulling shotguns from closets and handguns from dresser drawers, keeping them loaded and available.

When John Lee discovers that the two dead men were lifelong friends and part of an informal group calling themselves the Romeos, he looks for any connection that might lead him to the murderer. When yet another member of the Romeos is slain, panic sets in throughout the county. People are shooting at strange sounds in the night, reporting suspicious cars driving down the road, and some are taking advantage of the situation to settle old scores.

While all of this is going on, Maddy Westfall is still recovering from the savage attack that changed her life and ended with the deaths of her abusers. Dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder and seeing no way out of the mental hell she is imprisoned in, she seeks solace in a bottle. When that doesn't help, she sits in the dark with a gun to her head, looking for a final escape. Can John Lee and her trusted friends pull her back from the precipice before it's too late?

As sultry as a Florida back road in August, as mysterious as the South's live oak trees dripping with Spanish moss, and as deadly as a copperhead strike, Dead Romeos, the seventh book in New York Times bestselling author Nick Russell's John Lee Quarrels series is sure to hook you from the first page and keep you reading late into the night.
