Pucker Factor

(Book 11 in the John Lee Quarrels series)
A novel by

When a pair of would-be assassins ambush Somerton County Deputy John Lee Quarrels on a dark, lonely road late at night, it is only their ineptness and his quick thinking that saves his life. Wounded and disoriented, John Lee must make it through the forest on foot to find help, never knowing if his attackers are coming back to finish the job.

Soon tongues are wagging all over Somerton County and the rumor mill is in high gear with speculation about who might be behind the attack. Was it someone he had arrested in the past? Hitmen hired by a drug lord? A spurned lover? A jealous husband? A vengeful ex-wife? Or was it the richest man in town, out for revenge over John Lee killing his son?

As John Lee recovers from his injuries, two investigators from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, as well as Somerton County deputies, are investigating the possibilities and trying to get to the truth of the matter before another attempt is made on his life, which might be more successful.

Before the story ends, ugly truths are revealed about people from all walks of small town life, and the guilty must pay a heavy price.

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
, Pucker Factor, the eleventh 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.
