Publisher's Summary

Jake Crosby’s nine-year-old daughter Katy is pure tomboy, and her dad couldn’t be happier. Since she was old enough to walk, Katy has shared Jake’s love of the outdoors, taking to hunting and fishing as quickly as other kids take to baseball or bike riding. As he packs the truck for a spring turkey hunt, he vows to savor the time with his little girl. But Jake’s hopes for an idyllic weekend are shattered when a band of drug dealers attempts to break into the Crosbys’ remote hunting camp. Desperate to protect his daughter, Jake makes a violent and gut-wrenching decision.
His quick thinking enables him and Katy to escape the camp and flee into the Noxubee River swamp. The bloodthirsty criminals are hot on their trail, however, and no one, no matter how innocent, will get in the way of their vengeance. As their treacherous game of cat and mouse winds deeper into the wilderness, Jake must face the fact that not everyone will come out of the swamp alive - but he will do whatever is necessary to make sure that Katy does.
Taut and engrossing, The Dummy Line is the riveting tale of an ordinary man pushed to extraordinary lengths to protect his only child…and those for whom he feels responsible.

Good and Fast Paced

This was a really fast paced, on the run, page turner.   A story that could have gone very wrong at many turns.  A smart, brave man just trying to do the best he can to survive so he may save others who are unable to save themselves.  I will watch the reviews for the next in this series, but, based on this one I will look forward to another if it gets as good reviews. Good narration and one I will remember. Great price.

The Title Perfectly Fits the Book!

I don't want to give away the story more than the publisher's blurb, and I don't like to repeat the plot, since it's already there.

I usually like longer reads, but I'll tell you, I was very pleasantly surprised and impressed with this book! It's a no-holds-barred "Keystone Kops" kind of a novel, and I couldn't turn it off for wanting to know how it would end up. The back story is balanced quite well by the action and suspense.

I'm so glad the author has written a sequel, and I've pre-ordered it.

I heartily recommend this novel!
