Publisher's Summary

There's a new badge in the land of crime fiction...and it's pinned on a man who can stand tall alongside lawmen like Raylan Givens, Walt Longmire, and Jesse Stone.
Sheriff Colt Harper lives by his own moral code. His relentless crusade against drug crimes in his rural Mississippi county infuriates a Memphis mobster who sends Hack, his cold-blooded assassin, to stop him. ATF Special Agent Molly McDonough, looking to save her troubled career, follows Hack's trail of corpses to Harper's turf. The fates of Harper, McDonough, and Hack collide in a bloody, brutal showdown for justice, redemption, and survival that can only be fought outside the law.

Great story, can't wait for more.

Very well written story. Old school feel, very 1970s. The story was fast paced and had no fluff. It filled in the back stories when needed and made you enjoy the company of the characters. Small town life mixed with big city brutality brings the realities of the drug trade to life. As soon as the book was finished, I went looking for a potential next book, not because it leaves off on a cliffhanger (it does not), but because i enjoyed living in their world and did not want to leave. I highly recommend this book.

J. Rodney Turner did a great job. As soon as I heard his voice, i realized he had also narrated Hell Hollow. His voice and accent bring an authenticity to the southern stories he narrates, whether it is a western, cops and robbers or coming of age horror. I definitely look forward to more by Mr. Turner in the future.

I receive a free copy of this audiobook and I am leaving a voluntary review.

A combo of Longmire and Dirty Harry that works...

As the title suggests, Sheriff Colt Harper, takes tough and no nonsense approach to law enforcement in this fast-paced police thriller. Obviously the good guys versus the bad guys, but when revenge, remorse, and life-long relationships converge the lines between good and bad become a little blurred. Thompson characters (sheriffs, ATF agents, drug lords, hit-men, dealers, and rednecks) are well developed while taking several twists and turns along the way and come together in an explosive ending. The writing is descriptive and brings the listener right into the setting. This is complemented by the narration of J. Rodney Turner who brings the characters to life with his southern drawl in a steady paced tone. The only drawback to the narration is that I found that I was unable to lay down and listen at night as his smooth voice lulled me to sleep. I suppose that could actually be a plus in some cases. LoL

I would recommend this book to those that enjoy stories about small town lawmen. A review copy of this audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in return for this unbiased review. My hope is that this review helps in your decision to obtain this book.
