(The third book in the Colt Harper series)
A novel by

"Phillip Thompson combines the visceral verbal skills of Craig Johnson with the white-knuckle tension of Stephen Hunter. " S.A. Cosby

Sheriff Colt Harper believes that combat veterans share a lifetime bond of loyalty with their fellow Marines. But when his service buddy Robert “Flip” Wilson, who slid into an oblivion of drugs and crime after returning from the Gulf War, shows up in his county and kills a man, Harper's loyalty to his friend smashes into his duty to the law. The two men find themselves on opposite sides now, fighting a different kind of war, where the battlefields are their hearts and souls…and losing will cost them everything
