"I'm prone to comparing most man-gone-rogue thrillers I read to the best in their kind: Lee Child, John Grisham, Frederick Forsyth et. al. (in my opinion of course) and I genuinely thought this could pose some serious competition. It has all the best elements: a breakneck pace, an unforgiving and sometimes cruel environment, some form of drug-based conspiracy, and a can't-help-but-love-him disillusioned man at the center. This is not to make it sound cliche- it's rare that all the elements work together in harmony to make a perfectly entertaining and delicious novel such as this one" - Literary Titan
"This is a stunner." -The Prairies Book Review
"Surprises add to a strong, scary story filled with questionable characters" -Kirkus Reviews
"A stunning piece of literature that enthralled, entertained, and enchanted me from the very first page!" -Red Headed Book Lover

Set in three fictional counties of West Virginia, it’s a story of a murder-for-hire gone wrong. Cabel Walsh is a newspaper man and, after a falling out with the publisher of the local paper, he quits and takes a job at a newspaper two counties over. Spending less time in his home county, he finds himself disconnected from the people and events. One night, in a bar, he finds himself reacquainted with his childhood friend, Troy Mason. Troy and Cabel may have had the same childhood, but their adult lives have taken a significantly different turn. Troy’s life has been one of addiction, drifting from job to job and a failed marriage. Agreeing to accompany Troy to a business meeting sets Cabel down a dark path that ends with death. But whose?
Troy’s need for revenge after losing his last job and Cabel’s need to come to terms with his childhood weave into a web of lies, double crosses and murder. They find themselves in the crosshairs of the local crime lord after Troy refuses to pay for the murder due to a technicality. They have to take matters into their own hands before time runs out. Getting deeper into Troy’s world, Cabel finds he has to do things he never though himself capable of.
But when he finds these things aren’t that hard to do or reconcile in his mind, will he be able to find his way back from the darkness?
Mike does a great job with setting, characters and plot. His descriptions of West Virginia, her land, people and events are spot on. The plot is full of twists and turns.
You’ll think you have it all figured out and then here comes a twist you never saw coming. The characters are well defined and some you’ll find yourself thinking they remind you of either someone you know or used to know. Mike himself is a newspaper man and he uses his experience and knowledge to write a believable story.
