(Book 12 in the John Lee Quarrels series)
A novel by

Curtis Darling was without a doubt one of the most annoying men who ever lived in Somerton County, Florida. And given the number of rednecks, racists, wife beaters, petty thieves, drunks, methheads, and other assorted losers who called that part of rural north Florida home, that was saying a lot. Even so, the county was shocked when Curtis and his wife Mary Lou are found brutally slain in their own home.

Who would do such a thing, and why? Was someone finally fed up with Curtis and his constant bragging about how tough he was, or his whining about how he couldn’t catch a break? Did one of the many people he owed money to decide to collect the debt in blood? Or was someone after the big lottery windfall that Curtis had been boasting about to anyone who would listen? Was the killer a respected family man Curtis had cheated, a mysterious hermit living in the nearby forest, or someone from the murdered couple’s past?

As the story unfolds, fear, racism, revenge, greed, and long buried small town secrets come to light, and more blood will be shed before it’s all said and done.

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
, Jackpot, the twelfth 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.
