Now there's a price on the sheriff's head and a bullet in his leg. He finds refuge with his cousin, Jewell, and her teenage son, Ren, in their tiny Michigan town. But when Ren and his friends are threatened, O'Connor must risk his cover to find out why.Copper River opens with a terrifying scene that sets the tone for the suspense that grows stronger with each succeeding chapter. The narrator's taut performance underscores O'Connor's vulnerability and his vigilance.

Great location, lots of local color, and all that could be done is a pervert book

This book started out fairly well, but it became a book about men that sexually abuse children. And then kill them. I am not a fan of stories about sexually abused children...or the mindless murder of children. Surely today's authors can experience success without exploiting children
