Description

A cold-blooded murder. The victim: A fourteen-year-old boy. The shooter waits patiently for the cops and calmly explains his right to kill the boy. “I was defending my property.” Can Deputy Andi Pelton find the evidence to break through the killer’s stand-your-ground defense? Suddenly, Sheriff Ben Stewart almost dies and cannot campaign for re-election.

Part of a series, but I haven’t read any others , so I read this with no background information. Now I want to read the others. The author does a great job with the characters and the story, so the reader is totally immersed.
