Crackling with gunfire and suspense, the opening pages of BROKEN SLATE make clear that John A. Daly writes with assurance and style. . .
Thirty years ago, Sean Coleman's father abandoned his family in the Colorado mountain town of Winston, and was never heard from again. The reason for his disappearance was always a mystery, but a lifetime of blaming himself put Sean on a rough, dark path that took him years to return from.
Now content in his life, Sean receives unexpected word that his father has finally reemerged, on the other side of the country in Pawleys Island, South Carolina. . .as a murder victim. At the wishes of his sister, Sean flies out to retrieve the body, and hopefully find answers to why his father left, and the life he went on to lead.
What Sean discovers is a second family, a web of deception, and a brutal killer who's still on the loose. . .and isn't finished killing.
Exciting, Page-Turning Thriller
A fun read. I enjoyed rooting for Sean because he is a troubled anti-hero and kind of an a—-hole, but the reader gets occasional insights into why he is the way he is.
