Ace has been on the run for around 4 years - ever since the Russian mafia killed his wife, his sons, his daughter and her husband, and his father in revenge for something he did while he was working for the government. He has decided to come and visit Granville "Granny" Tubbs, a man who was a friend of Ace's father, and whom Ace has known his whole life. Coming in to Ferris' Bluff, AR, Ace discovers Granny is in a critical care ward in a nursing home after a series of strokes - when Ace comes to visit, he finds out there are restrictions on who can see Granny when. Ace notices other odd things going on in town. However, he likes the town and is immediately accepted into the community; he even earns some money, because he is able to fix almost anything - which gets him in some trouble with Pink Henery, the local mechanic, who doesn't appreciate Ace horning in on his business. Then there is Annie Travers, the widowed woman from whom Ace rents a room, and her two children - Ace finds himself becoming fond of them, and of many of the people in this quirky little town with whom he is quickly becoming friends. But can he escape the men who may be continuing to search for him?

I've probably rambled on too long about the plot, but I've tried to avoid any major spoilers. I wanted to try to show something about the story - about the heart, about the action, about how it kept me engrossed and engaged not only with the main plot, but with the many interesting and unique characters with which Limberg has populated this terrific thriller. Even folks who normally aren't fans of suspense/thrillers should enjoy this book - it has plenty of action and a fast-moving plot, but it also provides wonderful character development and a strong plot. I highly recommend that you get this book and read this book - it's a terrific read.

Note: I received a free copy of this book for review purposes.

Ace Evans is running from a troubled past when he finds himself in a small town that seems stuck in another era--and that might to be just what he needs. But, even in the sleepy little town of Ferris' Bluff, Ace can't seem to stay out of trouble. He soon finds himself inextricably entangled with the citizenry, where he's made fast friends with some of the more interesting people who live there.

This is a novel filled with action and a smattering of romance. All the characters have strong, well-defined personalities and readers will find themselves rooting for the good-guys and hissing at the bad-guys.

An all-round good read.

Not only can I relate to this as a Navy veteran, a gamer and a reader, but I read it in less than two days and couldn't put it down. My favorite part of the book is the characters, they are so believable and fun to read about. This book will keep you interested so grab a copy, it will not disappoint.

I've been living in Ferris' Bluff for a couple of days - at least, that's what it's felt like as I've been reading the book. The sense of place is beautifully established, as are the characters who inhabit it. At the centre is Ace Evans, and the other members of the cast are introduced in quick succession in the opening chapters. The author sketches them quickly through description but mainly through their actions and the way they speak. On the surface we have the indicators of how they all relate to one another, then there are the hints and undercurrents that are so inescapable in small-town life, but this closed atmosphere it never becomes oppressive or claustrophobic. Despite the fact that one focus of the action is a care home for older people, the book has a warmth and humanity which is very affirmative.

It is against this background that we gradually learn of a bigger, as yet unspecified threat which hangs over Ace. There is something of Lee Child's Jack Reacher about him - a loner who must keep moving to avoid being identified. The difference here is that Ace begins to regret that he must move on. As he meets more people and learns more about Ferris' Bluff and its own secrets, the various threads of the story are brought together into a central narrative drive. The pace never slackens, but it still manages to accommodate occasional violent episodes and their antithesis - those warmer, `sitting on the porch with a beer' moments.

It has humour, pace, action, great characters, warmth, and an artlessness that is very deceptive. A lot of thought has gone into its structuring and creation and it works as all good books do - by charming you, drawing you into its realities and making you want to know (but more, importantly, care about) what happens next. A highly entertaining and absorbing read, thoroughly recommended.

Fred Limberg created a town with a cast of characters I could almost see as I read. There were people I loved and the twisted people you expect to see in thrillers. Even though some were almost caricatures, I've lived long enough to have met people like that. I'm not going to summarize the plot as that's already been done in other reviews. The story is exciting, the background is detailed, the language is appropriate for the characters. (Although some might be put off by the "salty" language of some characters, it is in keeping with their personalities.) There is tragedy and comedy, violence and caring, thrilling action contrasted with quiet moments. I loved the book as I read it and thought about it for days afterward. I would recommend it to anyone who likes thrillers.
