Synopsis:
When an oil company approaches Tetumka, Oklahoma, postmistress Thelma Patterson for rights to lease her land, legal technicalities demand she find her husband, Billy Ray Patterson, who walked out on her nearly thirty years earlier.
Thelma turns to surrogate neice Chantalene Morrell and local attorney Drew Saunders to see if they can find Billy Ray, presumed dead all these years. That is until a handsome stranger with an uncanny resemblence to Billy Ray arives in town. A stunned Thelma takes her wandering husband back, only to confide in Chantalene later that he is not the man she married.
Chantalene's narrow escape in a hit-and-run proves something bigger than a missing-persons case is unraveling...a fact confirmed when Thelma is kidnapped, a decades old crime is uncovered and Chantlene is stalked by a killer whose blood lust won't be sated until she is lying cold and dead in a grave.

Book pretty good for the genre--short but action packed.
