So no doubt you will want to know what the book is all about, right? Well seeing as you all asked so nicely, here it is and if I say so myself, it sounds pretty darn good.
Cancel the wedding. The groom is dead.
When a tycoon’s son is murdered the night before his wedding, the grief-stricken father offers private detective Dan Reno a life-changing bounty to find the killer.
Reno, who is nearly broke, decides he’s finally found himself in the right place at the right time. But when a band of crooked cops get involved, Reno finds himself fighting for his life.
Who committed the murder, and why? Which cops can he trust, if any?
Haunted by his murdered father and a violent past, Reno wants no more blood on his hands. But a man’s got to make a living, and backing off is not in his DNA.
Traversing the snowy alpine winter in the Sierras and the lonely deserts of Nevada, Reno must revert to his old ways to survive. Because the bounty won’t do him much good if he’s dead.
How good does this book sound? Roll on the 15th of February is all I can say!
