When a burglary goes bad, the end result is not one but two men dead. Gayla Early knows who did the first murder but now she's wanted for the second ... and it turns out her supposed victim is the most powerful man in town, the same man she blames for the first murder and for holding her hostage for two years. Albert Raeder may be dead, but he wields power from the grave thanks to the good ol boys he left behind. His buddies want someone to pay for his death. And Gayla looks good for taking the fall. That is until a crotchety recluse and a Viet Nam vet-turned-sheriff team up on her behalf, an unlikely alliance that will change all their lives forever.

A robbery goes bad in a small town on the Oklahoma prairie, and the end result is not one but two men dead. Gayla Early claims to know who did the first murder, but now she is wanted for the second. Her supposed victim? The most powerful man in the county. Albert Raeder may be dead, but he still wields power from the grave thanks to the good ol' boys he left behind. His buddies want someone to pay for his demise. And Gayla looks good to take the fall. Sheriff Tommy Maynard's job has always been more babysitter than crime-solver. He prefers it that way. Then the county's biggest murder in a century happens on his watch, and the Viet Nam vet-turned-sheriff realizes he and a grumpy recluse are all that is keeping a fragile stranger from being railroaded right into prison.About the Author:
