Sinopsis:

With a murder indictment hanging over his head, an angry cop on his tail, and an unknown woman who just dove through his car window during a shootout at the Carson City sewage plant, Halford Turnbull has just one goal. To prove his innocence. Not to the prosecutors, not to the cops. To his brother. But brother Hanford is halfway across the country and between Carson City, Nevada and Huntsville, Texas is a pile of trouble that Hal simply can't seem to avoid. From stealing $20,000 to buy a DVD of a murder, to a low-rent casino in Vegas where a sadistic security guard is killed and a church filled with self-flagellant priests in Valentine, Texas, where a second shoot-out leaves a riot of bodies, Hal simply can't catch a break. And during it all, Hal wavers. He wants to prove to his brother-the good brother-that he isn't a killer. But as situations begin to pile up, Hal thinks less of his brother than his girlfriend and a safe, new life in Mexico. It is a 2000 mile journey that could lead to redemption and could just get him killed, and yet there is no way Hal Turnbull can avoid driving those miles.

Regardless of the venue-short stories, short novels, journalism, stage plays, even a poem or two-Trey R. Barker has always been fascinated with the darker aspects of humanity. He has published more than 70 stories and hundreds of articles in everything from newspapers to program guides to Chief of Police and Cemetery Dance magazines, and DiscoverBellyDance.com. A native Texan, he has worked as a journalist, a theater technical designer, and a karaoke system salesman. Currently, he is a deputy with the Bureau County Sheriff's Office in Illinois.

Review:

"Double-crosses, triple-crosses, a storm of bullets, and one bloody grab at redemption . . . and Hal Turnbull still has 2100 miles to go. This is a mean, greasy V-8 of a book, and Trey Barker's at the wheel. Buckle up."
-- Sean Doolittle, author of Burn, Dirt, and the upcoming Rain Dogs

"A new voice in the crime fiction world, Trey R. Barker has made himself heard with this book. It's kind of like Quentin Tarrantino on Methamphetamines. It?s not really a caper, but has some of those elements. It?s really just about a guy trying to get through an ordeal, and hopefully redeem himself a bit in the process. Barker writes with fury and the action in this book propels it at light speed. And yet the anchor here is the characters, human and flawed, but true.

Barker has come to kick some ass and chew some bubblegum, and he's all out of bubblegum."
--Crimespree magazine, August 2005
