After his schooling and a stint in the Marines, Detective Walker Nix is now back in the only home he really knows, the Smoky Mountains. Working with the Bitterwood P.D. may not be the height of excitement, yet it has its own fair share of troublemakers.
As happy as Dana Massey is for her brother’s upcoming wedding, she really has to force herself to take time off from her job. She has let her work as a U.S. Marshal become her life, so her boss is pretty much demanding she take a vacation.
The last thing Dana expects is to become embroiled in a case nearly as soon as she hits town, but no one messes with the only family she has left and gets away with it. Investigating her brother’s “accident,” with Nix’s help, opens a can of worms that goes back thirty years to a time when her mother fled the area amidst a horrible scandal. Nix is sick to learn how deeply the corruption goes, and even more so to think of how easily he could lose Dana.
Small town living this far back in the mountains takes the saying thick as thieves to a whole new level. Families protect their own, which makes Nix’s job precarious at best. He does a fantastic job of walking that tightrope, while also helping Dana uncover a past that many would like to see stay buried. I am anxious to see if the Massey’s get all they hope for in book three, and I know you will be as well.
