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.
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.
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.

I really enjoyed this book. It is set in Arkansas and it is clear the author knows the area. The story is primarily a well written mystery with a subplot of romance.Published 2 months ago by Regina Rowland
