Looking back on all of it later, Somerton County Deputy John Lee Quarrels couldn't help but wonder what quirk of fate, stretching back more than 80 years, would connect three Depression-era outlaws with another man born long after their crime spree was over with. A man who would be on the run from the police for more than 50 years himself. And how the things they did so long ago would end with a modern-day kidnapping that lead directly to him.

Newspaper reporter Dixie Landrum was a well-grounded woman with just two passions in her life, her job at the weekly Somerton County News, and her three dogs. So when Dixie didn't show up for work and it was discovered that she had not been around to take care of her animals, deputies John Lee Quarrels and Maddy Westfall knew something was terribly wrong.

Their search for their friend would lead them down every back road and rough two-track trail in the county. Along the way they would encounter a country storekeeper who was fascinated by conspiracy theories and had a disgusting hobby, rednecks with bad attitudes, corrupt cops, and a fugitive on the run from a crime committed half a century ago.

By the time it was all over, Somerton County would lose its innocence and things would never be the same for John Lee and Maddy.

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, the fifth 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!
