Sweet Tea And Jesus

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

When a hidden gunman ambushes D.W. Swindle in the driveway of his own home, leaving the Somerton County Sheriff barely clinging to life, every one of his deputies and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement are on the hunt for the attacker. The list of suspects include a father who blames law enforcement for the death of both his daughters, an abusive husband who blames the sheriff for the breakup of his marriage, racist cops, and even his own brother-in-law, Flag Newton, who is running against the sheriff in the upcoming election.

The list of suspects grows as the investigation lays bare the sometimes sordid underbelly of a small Southern town, and soon Deputy John Lee Quarrels finds himself under the microscope himself when strong evidence comes to light that suggests he might be the triggerman.

The reappearance of a former deputy who once held a special place in John Lee's life only serves to complicate matters, leading to an explosion of violence and bloodshed that folks in Somerton County will be talking about for a long time.

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, New York Times bestselling author Nick Russell's new John Lee Quarrels series is sure to hook you from the first page and keep you reading late into the night.
