McMichael must put aside the old family blood feud, and find the truth about Pete Braga's death.

This was my least favorite of T. Jefferson Parker's novels but this author is so good that even his less stellar efforts still rock! He has a real ability to draw you in emotionally as well as keep you involved in the story. Check out Serpents Kiss, Blue Hour and Silent Joe.
