The measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of peace, but where he stands in moments of tumult.
Jim Lane is pulling himself together after burn-out from a rescue gone bad. A peaceful life on Stockton Lake seems just the ticket.
An explosion of anger.
Jolted by betrayal, he survives an attempt on his life only to be drawn into a bloody turf war with the Russian mob. County sheriff Rita Morris knows his history and isn’t buying his explanation.
Rita lost her husband to a random shooting. Unsure if she’s ready to move on, she can’t deny the connection she feels with Jim. It’s a complication, but the pair form a united front with a simple message for the Russians. Get out of Limestone County!
A country boy.
Jim knows he can’t lose this fight. When the first bullet flies he steps into a whirlwind of twists and turns, new love, and old friends that hurtle to the end with an ally he never expects... and a blood debt that will keep him looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life.
