Series: Bob Lee Swagger
(From the publisher):
Former marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger--Bob the Nailer from has finally found a bit of peace at 50: wife, daughter, and anonymity. Then, Russ Pewtie, a young writer intrudes and cracks Swagger's shell: he wants to write a book about Swagger's father, Earl, an Arkansas state trooper killed in the line of duty 40 years ago.
Bob Lee isn't interested until he reads some of his father's old notebooks. Inconsistencies between his father's notes and the official version of the case prompt Bob Lee to join with Russ. They return to Bob Lee's western Arkansas home and soon realize they are decidedly unwelcome. A great deal of effort was spent to muddy the waters around Earl Swagger's death. Whoever did it is still around, and Bob and Russ start to home in on the shadowy figures desperate to keep the secret of his father's murder buried...
