About this title


Iry Paret's done his time -- two years for manslaughter in Louisiana's Angola State Penitentiary. Now the war vet and blues singer is headed to Montana, where he hopes to live clean working on a ranch owned by the father of his prison pal, Buddy Riordan. In prison, Iry tinkered with a song -- "The Lost Get-Back Boogie" -- that never came out quite right. Now, the Riordan family's problems hand him a new kind of trouble, with some tragic consequences. And Iry must get the tune right at last, or pay a fateful price.

Product Description:

Iry Paret is a young blues musician trying to put the past behind him. Having served time for killing a man in a barroom brawl, Iry heads west to make a fresh start, where he settles on a Bitteroot Valley ranch with Frank and his son Buddy, Iry's old prison friend. But just as Iry's new life is establishing itself, Frank is getting in too deep. Iry tries to remain uninvolved, but his passion for a woman pulls him in. Now he must determine how far he will go and how much he is willing to risk to help a friend.
