Description

Few residents in the small, secluded mountain town of Winston, Colorado, have kind words to say about Sean Coleman. He's a bully, a drunk, and a crime-show–addicted, armchair detective with an overactive imagination. After a night of poor judgment, Sean finds himself the sole witness to the unusual suicide of a mysterious stranger. With the body whisked away in the chilling rapids of a raging river, no one believes Sean’s account. Tormented over the doubts and mockery of the people of Winston, Sean embarks on a far-reaching crusade that takes him across the country in search of the dead man’s identity and personal vindication. At the end, he hopes to find redemption and the truth—but sometimes the truth is better left unknown. There are times when the truth invites evil. There are times when the truth can get you killed.

Advance Praise

I was given an advance copy of this book for my honest opinion. Hooley dooley, don’t expect an early night once you pick up this book. The main character Sean is not all that likeable; flawed does not cut it with him. He’s a bully, a drunk and an all round nasty guy but when he by chance sees another man suicide under mysterious circumstances the would be sleuth takes it upon himself to investigate. That’s when things start to get really interesting. Now I’m not going to give you spoilers here, but this book picks up pace really quickly and keeps twisting and turning to keep you guessing all the way to the end. Oh and as for our Sean, I think I might just like him now. Great story. ~Kerry Marsh for NetGalley

The story has multiple layers and until the plot unfolds the book keeps you awake. John Daly describes his scenes in such detail that you can see it in front of you. Nature, rock formations, facial characteristics, and weapons, it seems that there is nothing this author cannot describe. I look forward to reading more books. Highly recommended reading. ~Alice de Sturler
