A new Quinn Colson novel from the author of The Ranger

Janet and Ramon Torres seem to have skipped town—but Colson’s sure they’ll come back for the cash.

But Colson can’t focus on his personal problems. He and Deputy Lillie Virgil are convinced that Janet and Ramon have a taste for guns, drugs, and human trafficking.
