At age eighteen, Dale Criss entered the gates of Parchman Prison, convicted of killing his high school sweetheart. Twenty-five years later, he returns home, hated, feared, and determined to set the record straight. Standing in his way is Sheriff Trap Malone, a no-nonsense lawman who thinks the line between right and wrong is clearly drawn … until he takes off his blinders.
Wow! I loved this book. I liked the real feel of the characters and the twist and turns of their lives. I liked that every time I thought I knew what was about to happen I was wrong. And every time I thought I knew who the killer was I was wrong. I have read Carl’s The Night Train and Norton Road and his books just get better and better. In my opinion Carl Purdon is going to be right on up there with Dee Henderson, Lynette Eason and Terri Blackstock in a very short time. I can hardly wait for his next book!
