Ka-Bar Karma

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

When game warden Raymond McConnell is found murdered with his own knife in the cab of his state-issued pickup truck at a popular fishing lake, it’s hard to know where to begin an investigation because it’s doubtful that anyone in Somerton County had more enemies than McConnell. Even deputies John Lee Quarrels and Maddy Westfall are considered suspects at the onset of the investigation!

With their names cleared, John Lee and Maddy are called on to assist the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in the hunt for the killer, and they have a long list of suspects to investigate, including some people they consider friends. Was it one of the many women that McConnell bedded and then betrayed? A jealous husband or boyfriend? The father and his teenaged son McConnell had abused and humiliated on a dark lonely road late one night? His own wife, who was tired of his philandering ways and showed no sorrow when told of his death? Or maybe his sister-in-law, who made no secret of the fact that she hated the man? And that's not to mention the many sportsmen who were harassed by the rogue game warden.

As the hunt for the elusive killer goes on, John Lee and Maddy have other issues to deal with, too, including a ne'er-do-well husband who has ignored repeated orders to pay child support, and John Lee's airhead mother, who shows up in town and tries her hardest to turn their lives upside down.

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, Ka-Bar Karma, the tenth 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.
