Prison changes a man. Sometimes in ways you can see. Usually in ways you can’t.
Henry Quinn only survived three years inside because of Evan Riggs, a one-time country singer, one-time killer, now serving a life sentence, no parole. On the day he gets out, Henry promises Evan he will find his daughter, the daughter he never met, and deliver a letter.
A free man, Henry heads to the small Texan town where Evan grew up and where his brother Carson is Sheriff. There’s no sign of the girl, and her uncle claims to know nothing of her whereabouts. But Henry isn’t about to give up.
Carson’s behaviour towards him grows threatening, and Henry realises that there are dark secrets buried at the heart of this quiet town. What terrible thing drove the brothers apart, and what happened to Evan’s daughter?
As always, R J Ellory writes with compassion and empathy, taking readers on a journey that's emotional, intriguing and breath-taking in scope as his characters grow and develop.
